  1. Gruezi David! Let me know if you need more pictures or other information on the earlier XTRs. Mine (C1776) is an intermediate between the plus and the normal XTR. Best, David
  2. Servus Patrick! Haette Interesse am Cooke SP! Was stellst Dir in etwa vor?
  3. As far as we know they made 48. And we're trying to find where all of them are!
  4. Hi Charles! Can confirm that. 1/4 of a second. And I have an intervalometer for the XTR family if you ever need one! Best, David
  5. Hi fellow Aaton users, hope you're all well and have purring kittens on your shoulders! My friend David Schweitzer and I are compiling a list of all the Penelopes around the world. Who owns one? What serial number do you guys have? If you don't own one, where do you rent it? Do you know how to service it? Who are your techs? For those of you who are on Facebook, please join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1870336556426483/ We're trying to create a mutual support group and information center for all things Shoulder Cat! we'd love to have you join us in the Quest! Merci bien, David
  6. Hi Fred, you guys still have the Penelope? Best, David
  7. Hi Mack, did you end buying one? If so, please do get in touch with me at david@auner.net. I'm trying to compile a database of all owners and users. Merci bien!
  8. Thanks to Glenn we know have a wealth of info on old Angies! He scanned this very informative table for me. Thanks again, mate! http://www.auner.net/misc/DOF/Angenieux_Lens_Table_Oct_72.jpg So it really seems to be 45mm and 36 tpi. Best, Dave
  9. Glenn, could you post a scan of the broschure? I'd love to read that!
  10. Hi folks, does anybody have any an idea what size filter thread the old sweet Angie has? Seems to be around 49mm but I am not quite sure... I desperately need some NDs for that.. ;) Thanks! Cheers, Dave
  11. Quoting Adrian above: It's not really rocket science, for me at least. I'll often use a incident meter, and I'll stand on the talent's mark, and I'll point the lumisphere at the camera and get a reading. I know then with that reading, in that position, I'll get a "properly exposed" talent, which is nice, but doesn't help too much. Well, actually no. that's not quite true mate. Your meter is calibrated to about 12%-15% reflectance (depending on make and model and not 18% as everybody assumes and almost every books says!). And "average Caucasian" skin reflects about 35% of the light. So to get "proper" exposure you'd have stop down about one to 1,5 stops. Put in Zone System terms this means your meter assumes a Zone V but a face actually should fall into Zone VI so you close down one stop to put it one Zone higher "up"! Best, Dave
  12. Hi Matej, can you take a shot of the rods for me? Thanks! Best, Dave
  13. Thanks John! Makes sense to me. I remember reading that quite a large portion was shot with a 50mil to make the audience a voyeur as well... Regards, Dave
  14. Hi guys, am helping out a dear friend with an art project. She asked me to research lenses used in a couple of movies, the first being Psycho. Any clues what they used? Thanks, Dave
