16 SR Night Glow & 16 SR Speed Control

The Cinematography Electronics 16 SR NIGHT GLOW and 16 SR SPEED CONTROL are the logical pair of accessories to upgrade your 16 SR camera. Modernize your camera by combining the illuminated frame lines and brighter viewfinder image of the 16 SR NIGHT GLOW with the crystal speed range and digital function readouts of the industry standard 16 SR SPEED CONTROL. Mounted on the left side contour of the camera, the stylish low profile shape of these upgrades permits full movement of the viewfinder, and attachment of lens accessories.

16 SR Night Glow & 16 SR Speed Control

16 SR Night Glow

The Cinematography Electronics 16 SR NIGHT GLOW illuminates the optic screen frame lines with a pleasing luminous red glow in the viewfinder. All 16 SR type fiber optic screens are compatible with the NIGHT GLOW, so there is no need for additional frame masks or adjustments. The red luminosity level of the glow is adjustable over a wide 32 step range, accommodating different film lighting conditions. Glow up and down buttons (conveniently located on the top edge of the NIGHT GLOW) set the intensity level of the glow. Momentarily pressing a button changes the level by a single small step. Holding down a button scrolls the level continuously until the limit is reached, or the button is released. The NIGHT GLOW automatically adjusts the intensity level of the glow when the camera is running so that it appears the same as the preset level when the camera is parked. This eliminates the need to readjust the intensity level every time the camera is turned on, as is the case with the SR 3 camera. When the glow is turned off (with its toggle switch or by removing camera power), the luminosity level of the glow is digitally stored until the glow is once again activated.

The NIGHT GLOW circuitry directly senses the camera shutter position, linking and synchronizing the glow to the mirrored shutter, thus automatically adjusting for varying frame rates. This assures that the glow is only on in the shutter viewing position. The Cinematography Electronics NIGHT GLOW utilizes a 95:5 beam splitter. The 95:5 beam splitter transmits 25 percent more light to both the viewfinder and the video tap than a standard SR camera. This translates into a significantly brighter viewfinder image, and a significantly brighter video tap image; even brighter than the SR 3 camera.

16 SR Speed Control

The Cinematography Electronics 16 SR SPEED CONTROL combines an expanded crystal speed range, digital readouts, and other features in a stylish package for the 16 SR 1, 2 and 16 SRHS 1, 2 cameras. The SR SPEED CONTROL provides 75 crystal speeds for the standard SR camera and 150 crystal speeds for the SRHS camera. This crystal accuracy results in many flickerfree filming speeds with 50 Hz or 60 Hz HMI lights. Precise speed selections in one frame increments are easily accomplished with the push button digit switches that are protected by an integral sliding door. An out of sync beeper with adjustable volume chirps when the camera is not running at the selected speed.

Bright red LEDs display the camera speed in frames per second (fps), and the film count in either feet or meters. The film count is automatically stored in memory at least 4 hours on power down. A reset button zeros the film counter. All functions are powered by the camera battery through an internal wire harness. Two battery indicator LEDs show the voltage condition of the camera battery at all times.

The 16 SR SPEED CONTROL and 16 SR NIGHT GLOW add value and features to your SR camera. They both attach to the left side contour of the camera in place of the exposure meter and share an internal camera wire harness. Individually, the SR SPEED CONTROL mounts on an angle bracket that attaches under the camera handle. A new combo bracket that also attaches under the handle combines the SR SPEED CONTROL with the SR NIGHT GLOW. A medallion plate version of the NIGHT GLOW is available as a stand-alone unit. All required parts and full installation instructions are included with these products. Installation is also available at Cinematography Electronics.
