Walter Stoehr Posted July 14, 2017 Share Posted July 14, 2017 (edited) Hello, I've bought a used Arri Sr3 Highspeed. It is adjusted to super 16. I haven't used it in a while and I have an anamorphic shoot coming up where I will be using 2x anamorphics. I want to shoot in Normal16 to get the 2,66:1 aspect ratio. Do I have to get through the adjustment of changing the camera's lens alignment, the opening in the universal film gate and the viewfinder alignment in order to convert it to normal16? I lack the tools and the experience to do so. I get that I definately need to do this when adjusting from normal 16 to super 16, but isn't it sufficient to just change the Fibre Optic Viewing Screen in my case? In post I would just have to crop the sides because the Super16 just uses a larger portion of the negative. I won't lose any resolution by going down this road in comparison to adjusting all the mentioned parts of the camera and just have the additional portion of the super 16 frame covered and unexposed in normal16 "mode", right? Thank you so much for the answers! Best Walter Edited July 14, 2017 by Walter Stoehr Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
