My first project


#1

Hi All

My parents have a load of super 8 films and I want to convert them to digital. I discovered the super 8 raspberry scan project

on git hub but the instructions are a little vague,

I have the following

A raspberry pi 3
Raspberry pi touch screen
Pi camera
A macro lense
A couple of old film editing machines which I was planning to harvest rollers and arms off.

What I cannot find are any 3D printer plans. Does any one have these?

I’m aiming for a budget concept build. Any help would be appreciated.

I believe he used this guys roller… he had a reference to his project. https://www.shapeways.com/product/X9FHUQZRW/film-sprocket-super8-format-20teeth-001?optionId=13213109&li=marketplace
He has a couple other parts too.

I think his film gate was from another reference project in the gut hub which does have 3D models https://github.com/Alexamder/rpitelecine/find/master?q=

I’ve been looking at that guys github let us know how it goes.

Thanks B that’s really helpful. I will take a look and may have some questions.

I’ve got lots of bits I just need to try and put them together in the correct order :joy:


#4

As I probably mentioned I’m aiming for a budget build. Playing with Lego, some tissue and a torch for the gate. First time I’ve seen what’s on a random test reel.

Trying to keep my train of thought in one place so it will help others not make the same mistakes. Bought the following as a macro lense (budget £3)

Hello,
Check out my previous posts, I took the lorry image without macro. But I use it only for 8 mm films. Pi camera V2. Have a nice day.


#7

I have obtained a free printer and harvested it for parts for my budget build.

Any idea what type of motors these are?

I suppose two of these are dc motors. I do not recognise the upper one. Check this: "“how to recognize ac and dc motors.” from google.
