  10. On early cameras, the mirror shaft gear is retained by a 1.5mm pin. On later caemras it is held by a screw. Only full disassembly will reveal the problem. Mirror could be unstable on other end of shaft which is more difficult to address.

  12. Hi Steven, unfortunately no. I do have a complete ACL 1.5 kit which will shortly be listed in Marketplace.
  13. I may have an Eclair BEALA motor for you. This was Eclair's best motor, runs 24fps Xtal and also has variable speed mode. Designed by the late JP Beauviala who later founded Aaton. Powered by 12vdc through Canon 4-pin XLR plug. I can include a cable. Let me get back to you re: pricing. May also have an Ang. 12-120mm zoom for you in CA-1 mount. my email: cp@seriousgear.com Thanks ! -Charles
  14. Could be a "ruggedized" mount for military/aerospace use. Fastax, Fairchild and I believe Photosonics all had proprietary special use mounts ruggedized for high-G environments.
  15. Very strange. In over 30yrs in the cine camera biz, I have not seen this. All 3-lug mounting systems (CP, Aaton, Mitchell Mk-II) have lugs that protrude radially beyond the mount barrel. This mount has three lugs, but they appear flush with the mount barrel. The mount looks like an Arri std mount that was modified for reasons known only to those who did it. If you have a precision vernier caliber, measure the mount barrel (just forward of the lugs) . If it measure 41mm (or 40.95mm etc) It is Arri Standard. The cuttouts I cannot account for. Hope this helps. -Charles
  16. 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>
  17. 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>
  18. 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
  19. Now listed on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/303589846902?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I will give a better deal to Cinematography.com users than eBay bidders, because: no eBay fees...
  20. I can set folks up with a limited number of Aaton on-board batteries (either 12v or 16vdc) with appropriate charger & aux power cable (4-pin XLR) at reasonable prices. But not free.
