  1. 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
  2. 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

  10. Hi Derek, We have a full set of MK-II Zeiss speeds augmented with an 8mm T1.3/PL Illumina prime (covers S16, unlike the Zeiss 8mm which does not). Please email me at : cp@seriousgear.com. Thanks ! -Charles
  11. Now listed on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/303242104330?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I would accept $ 7200.00 for the lens in Aaton or Arri B mount, $7600.00 in PL mount.
  12. Offered for sale is an extremely scarce and desirable Canon 6.6-66mm T2.7 Super-16 format zoom lens. This is the 3rd and final generation of wide S16 zooms created by Canon in conjunction with Suzuki Enterprises, the Aaton agents for Japan. It replaced the Canon 7-63mm & 8-64mm wide angle units that broke new ground in terms of resolution, contrast and compactness in S16 optics. This is the so-called "Hurt Locker" lens (not the actual lens, but the same type). Currently mounted in Aaton (AA) mount, it can be supplied in various factory Canon lens mounts as follows: Canon 6.6-66mm T2.7 lens in Aaton (AA mount) : US$ 7200.00 Canon 6.6-66mm T2.7 lens in Arri B (Bayonet) mount: US$ 7600.00 Canon 6.6-66mm T2.7 lens in Arri PL mount : US 7900.00 Lens is in pristine condition, optically and mechanically. Includes older molded plastic case.
  13. Hi Evan, My company used to manufacture them, I have one complete kit left with 6" thread-in rods. All hard-anodized aluminum. email me: <cp@seriousgear.com> for photos and price. Thanks, looking fwd to hearing from you.
  14. Very clean Zeiss/Arri 14mm T2 PL mount prime. Wide angle, low distortion. Lens has clean glass and has been professionally maintained. Price: US $4500.00 or best offer.
