    Arri 2 perf
  1. Back to 2 perf... the days of finding a great deal on a 2 perf camera are over. We're building a 235 2 perf camera because we found a movement... It's basically what Tyler said. I have two 2-Perf movie cameras a 235 and ARRI 2C (converted) but neither were easy to get. Some of the 2-perf movie cameras I found out there have some iffy history to them and others were not converted right. Your best bet is a 2/3 perf SWITCHABLE 35mm movie camera. Your choices are very few... but they are the ARRI 235, Arricam LT & ST and Aaton Penelope. 4 perf anamorphic - anything (camera/lens) is very EXPENSIVE . 2- perf is the CHEAPEST THERE IS but you are limited only to feature films. 3-perf is the best possible FORMAT there is but only the 2nd cheapest compared to the ultra-cheap 2-perf. I would NOT stay locked into any "format" be it 2,3,4 perf. You need to be flexible to 2/3 perf these days ideally switching to format for online internet cinema (3-perf) or format for feature films (2-perf).
  2. "I would truly love it if any camera tech made like an in-depth tutorial on how to fully disassembly and take care of their Arriflex IIC. I wouldn't mind paying either for access to the videos. Perhaps that can be a thing ;P " There are motion picture dealer websites like Visual Products that has every manual in PDF format you can imagine for all the classic 35mm movie cameras. And for the new ARRI movie cameras ARRI has downloadable manuals and brochures. I keep a a PDF copy of my ARRI 2C 2 Perf Techniscope and ARRI 235 Techniscope. http://www.visualproducts.com/productInfo02.asp?ID=137
  3. Hey guys, I just called Axel today and he is no longer in the movie camera repair biz.
  4. Hey Rich I just sent you a proposal. Let me know what you think. Thanks for helping make this a safe and stress free purchase. :)
  5. Hey Richard, I finally spoke with Chris today, really great guy and he explained everything, it was stolen but was recovered. He told me he will have the stolen camera history deleted from the stolen gear section in the Insync Publication magazine. I think this is a valuable lesson for everyone ALWAYS CHECK HISTORY WITH MOVIE CAMERA GEAR. Pretty much every movie camera part or lens has serial#s with traceable history and dealers , rental houses and trade magazines usually have records of this. There is a lot of stolen gear out there in the marketplace and both buyers and sellers need to be careful check things out before purchase /selling. Insync Publication is a great resource for a list of stolen gear and there are several other places. Maybe I can list a thread here soon on resources soon. I have heard stories of people *accidently* buying/selling stolen gear only to be stuck with the headache. Everything turned out fine here but the lesson is always check the camera history! Same applies to used cars! lol :D http://insyncpubs.com/
  6. Just so everyone knows I am a potential buyer and the movie camera had been stolen from the previous buyer in 2008. It was recovered. Richard has been really great about being transparent about the history and he will put me in touch with the previous buyer to explain what happened. Richard is 100% current owner of the movie camera and it is not currently stolen. He has taken very good of the movie camera and it works 100%. It is currently listed in Insync Publications as "stolen" but I have been assured the title has been cleared. We will try to delete it as "stolen" since it appears to be old history. Again the camera is currently NOT stolen. http://insyncpubs.com/classifieds/ STOLEN EQUIPMENT: These item were taken 01/10/2008 Arriflex IIIC camera #85080w/handheld door #85C150 and eyepiece, together with Italian flatbase and Arri handheld crystal motor #109 Arri IIIC orientable door #85A081
  7. Hey Richard can you give me an email/call regarding the stolen/theft history on the movie camera?
  8. Thanks Mark! This is awesome. Ergonomics for hand held cinematography is important to me, and this is is a great recommendation. Wooden Camera was my first choice and as I live in Hollywood, California their shop is like 10mins drive from me. I think I will bring my ARRI to their shop very soon and see if we can find a good shoulder rig / hand grip. I like wooden grips and there are a few places that specialize in this like Omeneo , Moviegrip and Ergocine. Any recommendations? Will a 4 pin cable connect from my CE motor to the handgrip? http://www.ergocine.com/black-walnut-trigger.html
  9. Does anyone know the best handgrip or shoulder rig for hand held work with an ARRI IIC & Cinematography electronics motor? http://cinemaelec.com/products/2c_crystal_motor_base/
  10. I shoot on 35mm 2 perf myself and I always wanted to shoot with the Aaton Penelope!
  11. Visual Products will PL mount the ARRI 35 IIC for $1600 USD. Nikon mount I am not sure. PL mount is the best choice.
  12. Hey Richard do you have a private email? I tried to PM you on Cinematography.com but it says you cant receive new messages.
  13. Hello, I am in the market for a Cinema Electronics motor for the ARRI IIC. Please contact me if you have one for sale. Thanks.
