  1. Andree Martin at AM Camera is still doing BL4 to Two perf, I had my camera done two years ago.
  2. Yah, The most difficult thing about re manufacturing a movement, is that there has to be a large demand for it, because the tooling and the time it takes to make one , makes no economic sense. How many LT owners will spend big bucks for a 2 perf movement, how many productions have a demand for it? Arri doesnt do anything in a small way, it will have to be a big commitment for them to start up a production line for two perf.There are so few shoots that need a two perf camera, that the existing stock of 2 perf movements at arri, and Still functioning Penelope's to cover the demand. If an owner operator wanted a two perf camera, converting an arri BL4 is the way to go, since the cost of conversion is reasonable , compared to a more complicated modern movement like the movie cam and the LT's.
  3. Arri only made a limited number of two perf movements', I have seen movements for 235 on ebay, but rarely are they ever sold by itself. and the price of that movement was over over 20k
  4. here is a picture of Steve Morton's Oct.19 mount

  6. HI, I am looking for CFast 2.0 Adapter K2.48839.0 SxS Adapter K2.48838.0
  7. Hi, Yah I have a similar quest. I recently had a oct19 mount made by Steve Morton, from a left over last batch of Oct.19 mounts to Classic Alexa's. C7 offers Oct.19 mounts for Alexa mini and Amira. I have a full sets of Oct.19 superspeed and standard lens. The cost to convert to PL @$500 each, but with the Russian/Ukraine war, has made it a moot point. I too am waiting for the mini to come down, but Amira prices are dropping, so I can wait.In the mean time prices of Classic Alexa's are dropping below 6k, so when they get below 5k, maybe I will bite,lol. Good luck on the Oct.18 mounts, if you had the dough I would just rehouse them, Moscow workshop is working on new design, and GL optics in china can do rehouse conversions, @$3k each. Big decisions, but these are the options at the moment. Victor

  17. I'd say the biggest mental changeup, is how to fit in with a large crew you are new too. Most of the time if you are brought in as a day player, the regular crew has probably worked together for years, and have a routine. NO two crews are alike, and one has to observe and figure out how you can fit in to the flow. First thing is that you have to observe the lighting set up, the rigging crew has already done a lot of the work setting up, and you have to size up what the shooting crews task at hand. Usually the most deceptive simple setups are the most complicated. Read the call sheet study how production has planned the day, how much they plan to do before lunch, most importantly especially if you are outside, observe the weather conditions, where the sun is. Almost think like the DP, who has a job to do , within a limited time. That way you can anticipate what is going to happen before the DP tells the gaffer and the key grip what he needs. Being observant and in position, is alike a basket ball game, where you know where to be on court during a fast break. Eventually you will figure out how to work with different crews and you will find you phone ringing for more days on set.
