I bought this ARRI SR3 Super16 camera at the end of 2015 in the Visual Products eBay Store, it is an excellent acquisition, the camera is fully functional and ready to shoot. I use it in 2 shorts and everything is great, I love this camera and I do not want to sell it but I need the money for other projects.

The ARRIFLEX 16SR3 Camera System is designed to meet all modern film production requirements. The Integrated Video System (IVS) offers maximum video quality. With its off-set PL lens mount it is easy to change the recording format from Regular 16 to Super 16.

Format Normal 16 / Super 16: The format change from normal 16 to super 16 is fast and simple. With the off-set design of the PL-mount, the center of the image is precisely adapted to the format required. This guarantees optimum lens performance for Super 16. To convert the universal film gate only a small change is necessary. There is no need for a new film gate, which also leaves the original adjustments untouched. Fiber optic screens with all common markings and format combinations can be interchanged.

Control Panel with LCD-Display: A large LCD-display on the left camera side clearly shows information of all adjusted settings. Below the display, a control panel is integrated offering simple and precise access to the most essential camera functions.

Arri SR 16mm cameras are world-renown for their rugged reliability and time-tested performance. Arriflex SR cameras set the standard for a small, lightweight, flexible 16mm camera. From the introduction of the first SR camera in 1975 to the current day, no other 16mm camera has been used to shoot more documentaries, commercials, feature films and television programming than the Arriflex SR line of cameras.

The ARRIFLEX 16 SR3 Advanced incorporates all the elements of the ARRIFLEX SR3 with the enhanced features of a brighter viewfinder with ARRIGLOW, a modified gate design that makes the format change from Standard 16 to Super 16 fast and simple, a control panel with LCD display and Time Code.

Product Description:

This is a very complete Arri SR3 package with many accessories not found in many SR3 kits. It is a turn-key system that will arrive READY TO WORK!! A lessor, "bargain" camera that fails on a shoot (when time truly is money) can be the hardest way to learn the old adage: "Sometimes cheap is expensive."

Actual camera and accessories shown. Any item not pictured will not be included.

Only the body costs $5000 but include almost all the accesories that this camera need... eye piece ($500), rods ($500), arri run handgrip ($800), remote control ($1000), video assist ($3000) and more extras. Is a cheap price for a pro package. There some links to compare prices:
