  1. Thanks again Dom I’ve spent the morning looking into other dry film lubricants with ptfe which I believe the emralon is… I think this Lens has driven me to the point where I’m going to 3D print a little turntable an lad have a pop!
  2. Thanks for the continued support Dom! Deep down I believed that would be the case! I read somewhere that’s exactly what arri do with worn threads using emralon 330. Now I do hate to give in, especially with this lens (my wife joked it may be the first time in history a lens has been cited in divorce papers), but I think I’m getting close to accepting it! so my final questions- is emralon repackaged in a handy consumer sized spray can that you know of or is it only in huge buckets (as I fear) and is this even worth attempting myself? thanks again!
  3. Hi all, im back to tinkering with this lens again it’s becoming a bit of an obsession! mounting it on my sr3 I get a little bit of wobble which I think is due to this brass ring not being completely flat. I want to take it out and get it straightened and flat but cannot figure out how to get it out- any ideas? thanks in advance!
  4. The colorist Tom O Poole says on his Instagram post about the show it’s “500t and glorious cross process ektachrome”
  5. Hi, I was looking at the American Arri lighting catalogue (by error, I’m in the uk) and noticed that Arri doesn’t list chimeras anymore for the arrilite plus, but instead lists white translucent umbrellas and a stand adaptor (the Europe catalogue doesn’t have these and still lists chimeras) just wondering if anyone has used these or had experience of umbrellas with tungsten lighting? Do they need to be of a certain spec for heat? They seem like they would be handy in certain scenarios. Any experiences out there? I have chimeras for my 750’s but nothing for my 2000 plus and was interested in adding one to my kit The only places I can find the Arri umbrella is on us websites like adorama etc I’m guessing it’s a manfrotto umbrella that’s been rebadged. thanks in advance
  6. Thanks to Christin at Pille (https://www.used-filmequipment.com/products/list/id/130) I now have the spares - does anyone know if the worm gear needs any lubricant before installing? thanks in advance also if you are looking for spares well worth asking Pille, they do have more than is listed on their website
  7. Thank you Jean - louis I had a feeling the screws that came with it weren’t the right ones. the holes in the brass ring do line up with the focus indicator ring so hopefully if I can find the right screws I can get it working as good as new! Think they’re an M2 screw, not heard of dog points before but a quick google tells me that’s what I need thanks!
  8. Hi Dom, I have it all cleaned and lubed, back together and running smoothly until I screw the focus indicator ring back on- then it adds a huge amount of drag. It doesn’t appear damaged- would that ring also require lubricating? many thanks again
  9. If it makes any difference at all, it’s the same parts that have been in all arri sr cameras, from sr1 through sr3, including hs variants according to the sr parts manual. Even has the same parts numbers anyway thank you for looking
  10. Hi, this is a total stab in the dark hoping there’s a rental house on here somewhere with uncommon arri sr3 parts sitting around - pretty unlikely but I’ll ask before I go to a machinist... Has anyone got parts 25,24 or 23 in the attached SR3 drawing sitting around they won’t use? Arri no longer have any stock. They don’t look the most challenging parts of the camera to manufacture but you never know Thanks in advance
  11. Thank you again Dom, that’s amazing- weeks of internet trawling hasn’t even uncovered that brand! That definitely narrows down my search to a much much smaller area! thanks again!
  12. I’ve heard that’s all the rage in shoreditch currently. Nice push chair! We have an uppa baby vista and we’re about to have our second child so I’ll check with HQ and see if I can add “ability to transport kit” to our needs list !😂
  13. Thanks Uli, sorry I didn't see your reply! I'm going to hopefully get my SR3 out to london next week to capture the emptiness so I'll give the labs a call then!
  14. Fast forwarding to almost a year later and having had the benefit of time and an uneconomically repairable lens, (by the time you add a PL mount and fix it, it didn't stack up), I managed to solve the Rubik's cube, put the lens together, remarkably without tearing up any threads, and get it all back, focussed at infinity (as good as my eyes can anyway) and understand the markings and gap measurements enough to rebuild it a few times.... Anyway, does anyone have any helicoid lubricant recommendations? I've tried NYOgel 795a but it seems a bit heavy for my liking (admittedly I might be packing the thread as well) Needless to say the original zeiss lubricant would be ideal, but I believe you actually have to be a professional, trained lens tech in order to buy this (and rightly so, the complexities of even a simple prime like this is way beyond me) but since we are talking a rightly diy project i'd love to know if anyone has any recommendations Thanks in advance!
  15. Look beautiful Uli, I’m inspired to dust off my moviecam- I think I have (possibly) the last 6000 feet of fuji eterna in existence... im curious- what sort of price per foot can you get at Kodak for processing and tk these days? Do they deal with small minimums? Not used film in nearly 10 years..! cheers
