I've managed to find most of the info I need on the dxc-300; however, I'm hoping to find an adapter for the many slr lenses I have. What kind of mount does this camera have? C-mount 1/2 inch? What kind of adapter would I need? Obviously I know what slr lenses I have(mostly the old screw mounts) but what do I need to adapt to?

I have(being shipped to me) a dxc -3000 and a u-matic recorder. Since the person getitng rid of it was willing to just give it to me(I only payed the cost of shipping) I took it without knowing much about it. Does anyone know what kind of resolution it gives? I'm about to tell my video production partner (a man who treats mindv like the second coming) about it, and would like that data to give him.I'm already braced for all hsi pro dv arguments, but any other information to help sell him on it for our next production would be good.
Hello, I have a non working CP-5060ED U-matic PAL machine and was wondering if anyone is interested in this or would have any use for the parts inside it, the head and everything is in perfect condition. Any reasonable offers accepted or trade for other parts or equipment. I am located in victoria australia, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or even if you are interested in this area and would like to chat.
hi, has any one got any u matic tapes for sale? unused or pre, will collect.cheers
better late than never here a delayed responce. I don't think it is a analogue/digital issue. I don't know the NV-MS4B camera. I do know the WJ-AVE5 and the BVU-800. If the camera is a one CCD/tube camera you can get much improvement by using a two or three CCD/tube camera (and lighting is very important). It also would be much better if you can leave out the WJ-AVE5.
Old professional/broadcast equipment is still better than most modern consumer/prosumer equipment.And going digital only will improve your end result if you can spend a lot of money. If you want to produce something serious on video don't use consumer or even prosumer equipment! I started on HI-8 consumer equipment and I still wished that I had spend that money on old professional/broadcast equipment. So go for (lets say 10 or 15 year old, because it is affordable) professional or even better broadcast equipment. The BVU800 is a good start.
Hello every one! I have a small problem.Telcom Research T6010 LTC SMPTE Reader Insert.
I just bought and hooked up a Telcom Research T6010 LTC SMPTE Reader Insertto a BVU820 3/4 deck with Timecode. The 3/4 Timecode output is connected to the Telcom's Timecode input. When I play a tape with Timecode the Telcom TC reader won't read the code off the tape. It only reads it when the deck is in fast-forward or rewind! I've tried generating code from my MIDI interface to the Telcom reader, and it reads the Timecode with no problems! I've tried different cables, I made sure the deck is sending out code...my audio gear locks-up with it immediately! The 3/4 deck Timecode connectors is RCA. I see that the connectors on the Telcom are XLR. I have an adapter which I've tried, but I still get the same problem. I've also checked out the URL link http://www.timecode.com/t6010.html & downloaded the PDF manual, but it was little help.I do think the Telcom Timecode reader works because it read code from my MIDI interface, but I'm wondering if anyone know's of any solutions for this problem. If anyone know's of Telcom's web sight or a number or email where I can contact them, I would deeply appreciate it.

Hi!On the rear of my VO1810 (uk) is a system select lever.<At PAL mode it plays and records (just!) ok.>In NTSC mode, I think I can playback NTSC tape into a PAL TV, But can I <record NTSC/PAL source to NTSC tape format>?My intention is to record stuff from <NTSC cam or PAL VHS VCR> onto NTSC Umatic for to send to American cousins.

For those of you looking for manuals:I found this Australia based company, High Country Service Data. They sell and rent(!) service manuals for just about anything.

Re: Sony BVU800P Umatic Recorder.
Has Anyone Experienced This Problem ? Basically, I am using analogue equipment to make a training video. In studio, I am assemble editing each scene.And I'm having difficulty getting an acceptable quality, especially on the dubbed VHS copy. Currently, I have the following analogue system:Panasonic NV-MS4B - SVHS - Analogue Camera.Panasonic WJ-AVE5 Digital AV Mixer.Panasonic NV-FS200B SVHS Video Recorder.Sony BVU800P Umatic Recorder. I'm using the Sony Umatic as the Master recorder, and feeding the camera signal output, to the Sony, via the mixer.I will then later dub copies direct from the Sony Master, onto VHS tape, for distribution. Any Ideas ?? Regards Mike.

Hi! I´m looking for a Umatic machine in good condition. Should be either a 5850, 7630, 9600. I´m located in Germany.
I am doing research into the effects of binaural beat and high frequency sound. The preliminary work has been done and the results are promising. Unfortunately, to complete the tests I need to obtain new software that will do the required job and I have been having difficulty finding software that has the frequency range that I need.
I am trying to find an audio generator program that will generate a minimum of two tones at the same time, each tone set at a different frequency, one tone each to right and left speakers. Both tones must be as accurate as possible (to a 10th of a hz) and be able to be set anywhere between 500hz and 20khz.
Can anyone put me on to a program that will meet my needs?
Looking to buy a second hand timebase corrector.

Hi, I was wondering whether or not Ulead has a program that can creat chapter tracks on a VCD. Can I have the name of the program and how it works? If Ulead doesn't have the program, are there any other programs available that can carry out this function? Thanks for your time.
OK. If you are not in a hury we can have a look at it this weekend. I have the manual and repaired a couple of VO-8800 in the past. We can mail outside the chat page in Dutch if you want.
Steve it looks like the black level of the red tube is to high. If that is the case the camera won't auto black balance and you will have red in the dark areas. If you want to realigne a (tube) camera you need grey and colour charts (and they are expensive) an oscilloscope and vectorscope. This is a job for a specialist. If you are able to check the black levels for the three tubes you can try to re-aligne this. Before you touch a potentiometer mark it so you can always return it to the old position.
I just picked up a Sony VO-5850 and it plays a pre-recorded 197 KCA-60 tape fine,but I can't record on it. Neither can I record on a 187 KCA-40 tape. By not record,I mean the record light doesn't come on and the program is not recorded.I have all the manuals and the red record buttons are in place on the tapes andthe program source is coming from a VO5600 and all the settings are correct.I can record from the 5850 to the 5600 but not from the 5600 to the 5850.I can even record from either machine to a separate VHS machine.
The record light on the 5850 comes on when there is no tape in the machine.So, are these the incorrect type of tapes for recording to a 5850 or is there a problemwith my 5850.
Sorry this is only lossely related to Umatics ( well its plugged into one anyhow) I have a DXC M2 that works fine in Daylight, but in doors the image is very red like the gain needs turning down on the red tube ? When the lens cap is on its still red. The auto WB works fine but when you try to manually adjust the black balance it won't do it and sort of locks up. Unfortunately I have no service manual and there are more pots inside than at Woodstock !!! Are any of you out there familiar with tube camera's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once again sorry for posting it here ( If all else fails it will make a nice anchor.)
I guess by meter you mean the "bat" meter ?in that case the main supply(14v)is there ,so no problem on that onein the supply area of the bottom pcb thare are some points marked 5 v , 10 v and 6 voltwhere the 6 and 10 volt aren't there just a minor 2 volts going up and down about 0.5 volts
Check the meter on your VO-8800. One setting tells you if the supply voltage is high enough.
hiIm looking for some info on a vo-8800 portable I've got two of them wich are making a faint klicking noise and that's about it (maybe a supply problem?)any info would be helpfull

Hi, Can any of you give me advice what U-Matic I should start with. I thought that a portable machine (ebay Item # 1350587940 ) would be best to start with (so i can have the camera recordings go straight on to umatic to prevent extra loss normally involved with converting video from one format to another) and then build up the system as I find more machines.
Hi Umatic fans. I have got my BVU 150P out of the loft. It is great condition and it fired up straight away and went into play, pics still good. Unfortunately when I try to eject the tape it tries and then the "tape slack" light comes on and it just wont play. I had this problem a while back and the service guys thought the external power supply I had did not have enough juice. Now I am using a charged battery pack and light remains.Any ideas anyone? Help appreciated.

I recently acquired a Sony BVU-800 for my audio production studio. I can't seem to get the onboard TC reader / display to show the LTC that;s on the tape. My audio workstation slaves to the LTC timecode, but the onboard reader on the front just shows an arbitrary counter #. What do I need to make the two correlate? Thanks, Jeff

I saw a Sony U-matic Video Cassette Player VP-5030 on an auction site. Just want to know what's it good for (if it's working)?
I have a Sony VO-6800ps, portable carry case, batteries and charger that I'm trying to sell... could anyone let me know where the best place is and how much they are now worth... anyone interested?
I just dug out an old VO-4800 while having a clearout and can tell you a little about the batteries I have here. The are made by Chloride-Gates Energy and the model is Cyclon 60. They are in a plastic box which mesures 124mmx67mmx67mm and have a 100mm flying lead terminated in a 2.1mm dc power plug.
Inside the box are 6 cells of approx D size and a small pcb. The pcb has a piece of 20A fuse wire and nothing else. The cells themselves are Chloride CYCLON's and are marked as 2 Volts 2.5Ah so are probably Pb-Sn (Lead-Tin).
This type of battery pack is a breeze to make yourself and you could also take advantage of modern battery technology and use 10 Ni-Mh (Nickel-Metal-Hydride)cells that do not suffer from memory effects. I would be tempted to just buy some tagged Ni-Mh cells from CPC, an inline fuse holder and a 2.1mm power plug. You should be able to make a pack with nearly twice the capacity, probably about 4500mAh, in the same package size.
The only drawback is you wont be able to use the original charger as this will be a constant voltage charger and modern cells require a constant current charger.
You can still get Pb-Sn cells, and make a pack compatable with your charger, from http://www.strikalite.co.uk at about £5.30 each cell compared to about £2.50 a cell for 3500mAh Ni-Mh from CPC.I wouldn't bother trying to find an original battery as Pb-Sn cells have a short shelf life if stored in a dischared state so even if you find one you will probably end up having to replace the cells. Hope this info is helpfull to you.

this is my first intro to a chatroom. advise if you read me.
JMThe VO-8800 needs a good quality supply of 1,5 amp. But if you connect a camera to the recorder you need to check how much the camera uses. Use a good quality power supply. I use a 5 amp CB supply with a VO-8800 and Panasonic WV-F700. This supply runs to hot although it is rated for 5 amp. continuously and 7 amp. peak! So I am on the look out for a better quality supply.
I have just got a JVC BY110 3 Tube Camera. The VCR out is 14pin ( same as Sony ?) When it is connected to a 6800 Umatic, it Records ok but there is no playback in the BY110 Viewfinder. Does anyone know if there are any differences in the pin outs between the two ?
I must correct myself. It is NOT the manual for the RX-707 i need ( found it ) but the manual for BKU-701. I got an VO-7630 U-matic i want to control with the remote, but i want to know the dip-switchsetings on the BKU-701 board.
I deserat need a manual for Sony's remote : RX-707. Mail it if you got it, or send a link for a' page.
I just purchased a U-Matic SP portable that uses 12 volt 4 pin XLR for it's power. Does anyone know how many amps it needs?
Last night I was having a play on a local hill ( North Wales)testing a couple of Umatic portables ( an old 4800 and a 6800) with some camera's, a DXC M3, KY17 and an old Sony V600E hi 8 Camcorder. As it started to go dark I expected the KY17 to out perform the M3 but what I didn't expect was the old Sony camcorder to run rings around the KY17 in failing light. I may have to have a re think !!

Hi, Just discovered this site. I've got a pile of old PORTABLE U-matics to clear. There are 5 (five) BVU 50 525/NTSC machines which were working last time they were run-up, which was several years ago, and have blue Kangaroo cases. There is 1 (one) BVU 110 525/NTSC machine with BK 112 time-code generator, also with Kangaroo case...good condition but not used recently. There is 1 (one) BVU 150 625/PAL machine with time-code and Kangaroo case. Basically good condition, but due a service. Also three longish 14-pin umbilical cables and a couple of dozen U-matic tapes (both sizes and assorted lengths). Also 2 (two) BVU/14-pin backs for Sony BVP 330 camera, complete with battery box clips and 1 (one) only battery box for BP 90 or similar.I am looking for offer, preferably for the lot, but will be happy to clear individual items.I am based in South-East England (S.E.London, North Kent). E-mail me, or telephone me on 0208 462 6371 or 07860 777 687.

Can someone tell me what Battery a 4800 Umatic portable takes. I have recently accquired one that works fine, I have been using it with an external battery, however I have just got hold of a PSU/Charger, so I wouldn't mind a usable battery pack.

Hello, I have a BVU820 with the TC-20 Reader/Genorator Card installed. I would like to know how to genorate Timecode onto the tapes with the TC-20 Card. I don't see any buttons that will do so, so I'm wondering if there is a combination of buttons that I have to press to access this feature? I would deeply appriciate the info. Also, does anyone know where I could get instructions for the TC-20 Card on the web??Tanks......LSD
The TC20 is a timecode reader. You can't generate timecode with the TC20

I'm offering a several older umatic machines on my web-site have a look at http://fabian.schelo.bei.t-online.de
Steve, I used a Panasonic WV-F200 camera to a VO-8800. I assume the 8800 and 6800 uses the same 14 pin connectors. The WV-F200 uses a 32 pin connector. Does your JVC uses a 32,26,14 or 10 pin connector? I know there are adaptor leads that go from 14 pin to 10 pin and from 14 pin to 26 pin. Sometimes different brands use different pin numbers for recording function video playback/confidence etc. When you want to change connections in the connectors you must be able to work verry neatly.

Talking about Camera's does anyone know if you can get any sort of adapter lead to enable you to connect a JVC Camera to a 6800 Portable. You often see Sony portables with other camera's on Ebay and I often wondered were they just going video in or is there a lead available . Also has anyone out there got a lens hood that will fit on a DXC M2.
