The "A" camera used for the majority of Sleep Always was a Nikon R10. This is the top-of-the-line Nikon super 8 camera and one of the best consumer super 8 cameras available. Factory features: 7-70mm zoom lens; f1.4; variable shutter: 0-160 degrees; in-camera fades/dissolves; frame rates: 18,24,54 fps and single-frame.
Custom modifications: the handle, which contains the power source, was repositioned beside the camera body. A new base-plate was added, including a metal frame which wrapped around the camera (like a roll-bar), allowing various accessories, such as lights or video-assist rig, to be attached. The metal frame also allows camera to be suspended from a boom-arm. Mounting rods extending out the front hold lens attachments, bellows, matte boxes and so on.
