  1. Brilliant and simple.
  2. Utterly fascinating. I now see the genesis of Arri's movement.
  3. You asked for participatory advice then collectively dismissed us as sheeple absent practical experience? Good luck with your search for an obligatory peanut gallery that can validate your alleged superiority. Over out.
  4. Your right, i.e. "Optional Arri standard/Bayonet lens mount upgrade $250.00" http://www.duallcamera.com/services/index.shtml
  5. There is only one direction for this type of adapter as the M42 FFD is less than the Arri PL FFD, i.e. M42 FFD = 45.46 mm (camera mount) Arri PL FFD = 54 mm (lens mount) Replacing the K3 M42 hard front with an Arri Bayonet is not trivial nor inexpensive. It would be less expensive to purchase a used Arri 16mm camera with an Arri Bayonet mount, i.e. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arri_bayonet "...SB (only one turret), ST/B (only one turret), M/B, 16BL, Arriflex 16SR, and Arriflex 16SR2 (early models)." Les Bosher might be able to assist you with your desired hard front, i.e. http://www.lesbosher.co.uk/ under his CAMERA CONVERSIONS tab. Good luck on finding another filmmaker who has undertaken this type of conversion.
  6. No direct usage with the following links. I rejected my newish K3 sometime ago as a reliable camera. It kept jamming with simple load tests. Some specialized M42/PL Mount adapters that may work in conjunction with an Arri Bayonet/PL Mount adapter. Careful. Only specific PL/Bayonet lens will work especially if the rear element protrudes deep into the adapter. You do not want to hear a spinning mirror crunch. As in Rolling Stones's "Shattered". https://www.rafcamera.com/m42-lens-to-arri-pl-mount-adapter https://araxfoto.com/accessories/pl-m42_adapter/ Nicholas
  7. Well done! Beautiful haunting simple song paired with excellent visuals. The short subtle double-exposures worked well. Does the vimeo link represent the final version? Or is additional post planned to remove the occasional film based artifacts, e.g. dustballs, startup flash frame re: motor ramp up, etc?
  8. Interesting and thanks for the followup benefiting future Arri 416 users.
  9. I doubt as the Bolex bayonet FFD = 23.22 mm and the MFT FFD = 19.25 mm which leaves a paltry 4 mm spacing to work with. You could send Les Bosher a request to assess your potential difficult task, i.e. http://www.lesbosher.co.uk/ He is a Bolex bayonet adapter specialist.
  10. Thanks, Rick, and I will do so.
  11. What do you mean by "...looking at"? As in purchase? I was under the impression that the Bolex SBM comes with a stock 13x viewfinder. Sorry, but those tests will not be happening for awhile. My email is nkovats@gmail.com if you wish to remain in touch.
