Mike Reilly's Kinograph Design


#1

Was hoping someone might have the parts/design for Mike Reilly’s design shown here:


#2

That’s based on the v1 of Kinograph, and the parts/instructions are here: http://www.instructables.com/id/Kinograph-v01-DIY-Film-Scanner/

I noticed that Mike has a few extra components which greatly improve the design. Was hoping someone here might know what they are or where I could find them. I’ve tried to reach out to Mike directly, but haven’t been able to get in touch.

Hey there. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him post any specifics on what he added other than what is in the slide presentation he posted in the forums (as @AACALibrary).

If you’re thinking of building a Kinograph, you may want to wait until v2 design is finished. My goal is end of 2018. I’m going to be spending some time this week putting together a production plan and publishing it here on the forums so people know what to expect in terms of timing and approach.

Sorry that isn’t much help to you immediately.

Outside of building the v2 of the kino, below is some of the info for the build we made.

I made a post about our build and the details are in the reply. Here at the AACA Library we've finished our short film about our version of the kinograph

You can also view the dropbox link here that details some more info. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g8b5i9f2poguuwv/AAAAoYsV7IoyCIaGz5vQ3v98a?dl=0

Or shoot me an email or call the library and ask for Mike. 717-534-2082

Thanks, Mike!

The only final question I have is: what kind of camera and lens did you use?

Cheers!

No worries. We grabbed the Panasonic GX8 with an olympus macro lens. There might be a better option out there now. There were arguably better options at the time, but the price point on that one was right for us. It has a full electronic shutter/silent shooting along with the option of a remote clicker to take the pics and sync up to the arduino. Still images are in the 4k range as well. We use it at the library for video and photos and it takes a really great picture. Video on it is really good too.
