Arri SR2 Power Switch

Recommended Posts


My SR2 powers on right when I connect the battery. Is there suppose to be a on/off/standby power switch like in the photo below? Or is that just how some model are? Usually I won't attach the battery until right before I'm ready to roll, to just make sure it isn't left rolling unintentionally or draining the battery.

The standby switch was used to power up the automatic aperture system in SR2s that had the internal lightmeter and auto-aperture installed, but it wasn't necessary in the models without it. You should be able to control camera run by sliding the switch up and down.
