Expected noise of an SR3?

Does anyone have a video or audio clip of an SR3 (non-highspeed) running? The SR3 Advanced I just got sounds a bit odd, running at 24fps without film. I’ve only ever been around SR3s while shooting MOS, so I never really paid attention to the noise. Does it sound like this camera needs a service? Is it typically the body or the mags that need servicing when the noise is too much?

Try it with film, should be quieter.

Oh interesting. My ACL is definitely louder with film loaded than without, so I just assumed that was the case across the board. Will try with film ASAP. Thanks!
