  1. Earlier posters are correct in saying the Cooke 9-50mm T2.5 zoom is a Standard 16mm lens. Cooke released a Super-16 version: 10.4-52mm T2.8, but it is a relatively rare lens. UK firms: Optex & Abakus offered S16 conversions for the lens. I will soon have available the Cooke/Abakus unit: 10.8-60mm T2.6 in , I believe Aaton mount. Please email me if interested. Thanks ! -Charles Pickel <cp@seriousgear.com>
  2. We have for sale a gorgeous 35BL EVOLUTION system (mods by P+S TEchnik, Munich). This has the extremely bright swing-over finder & super-quiet variable pitch movement. Video assist needs to be sorted, but otherwise is in marvelous condition. email me for photos and details. Thanks ! -Charles <cp@seriousgear.com>
  3. Giorgio, I am in the USA, not EU, But I have a gorgeous Arri 325BL Evolution with full P+S viewfinder & variable pitch EVOLUTION movement (Did P+S offer a 2 or 3-perf version of this, maybe they can convert ?). email me if interested, for pictures and pricing. It will be very reasonable. Thanks -Charles cp@seriousgear.com

  7. You are most welcome ! Full disclosure: David bought this nice late-production XTR Prod from me. It is a rare beauty. I hope you can pinpoint the source of this issue. Let's be in touch ! -Best, -Charles
  8. My only thought is: Yes, this is the claw side of the film channel where the time code LED's are. If the ASA (ISO) on the light meter is not set for the correct ISO of your film, the LED's may be producing an overly bright image, which could perhaps conduct through the film base (halation). Color of late-production Aaton LED matrix is yellow. It is worth checking out, hope this helps. -Charles Pickel, www.seriousgear.com
