  1. The Arri Amira Premium camera set (K0.0014798) is the most feature-packed version of this camera. This is similar to an Alexa mini, but in a documentary / ENG form factor. All ProRes flavors are available up to 60 fps in ProRes 4K UHD or 3.2K up to 4444 (or HD resolutions), with Rec. 709 and Log C functions. Can record progressive or interlaced resolutions. Maximum frame rate is up to 200 fps. The 35mm ALEV II CMOS sensor provides a 14-stop dynamic range, natural skin tones, and an EI range of 160-3200 (native 800). Records onto qualified Cfast 2.0 cards via dual slots. The buffer function captures a pre-recorded segment, enabling you to grab unpredictable shots. Pre-loaded LUTs and the ability to import custom 3D luts. Features such as peaking, zebra, false color, and dynamic auto-tracking white balance enhance usability. Additional features include: built-in ND filters, 6G UHD / HD-SDI outputs, 1.3 anarmorhpic de-squeeze, de-noising option, XLR inputs with phantom power, easily accessible operator-side controls, 4-pin / 12-pin connections for ENG lenses, bluetooth compatibility for audio monitoring, and laptop/tablet smartphone control via wi-fi. The MVF-1 viewfinder assists single shooters. Can be used with traditional OLED eyepiece or folds open to reveal a 3.2" daylight visible LCD monitor to assist with camera settings, live coverage, or reviewing footage. Camera settings, peaking, zebra, false color are all easily accessed via physical buttons. Physically adjustable in many ways to suit your shooting style and comfort. This includes the MVF-1 viewfinder and connector cable, LDS PL mount installed, Anton Bauer battery plate, and a power supply. This also includes a high quality hard travel/shipping case with custom protective foam (not pictured). The original top handle has been upgraded to the UAP-2 Universal Adapter Plate Set (K0.0001280) which dovetails on top of camera and includes the UAP-2 (K2.0001221) Universal Adapter cheese plate with multiple threaded mounting points, CCH-1 center camera handle, and VAB-1 viewfinder attachment bracket. This also includes the WPA-1 (K2.75000.0) Wedge Plate Adapter ENG-style camera base, featuring a soft shoulder pad and support for VCT-14, VCT-U14, QRP-1, and similar ENG tripod plates. Also includes 2x Arri rosettes and 15mm LWS rod mounts at front. This has the premium license with all the features that entails. It only has 981 operating hours. Cosmetically there is some paint wear around the body from velcro removal, most noticeably on the right side - but no damage or abuse. This was just fully serviced and reconditioned by Arri - including a sensor replacement, new cover glass, memory battery, and any parts that were not to spec. The sensor was calibrated, firmware updated, claned, and all functions and image criteria passed Arri's stringent bench tests. So the sensor and all functionality is perfect and fully checked out by Arri themselves, to ensure reliabilty!
  2. The Arri Alexa Plus 4:3 (K1.71150.0) is like the standard Alexa Plus, but has a 4:3 Super 35 sensor ideal for using anamorphic lenses. The full area of the sensor is used and a much higher image quality retained - the magic that anamorphic lenses provide is rendered faithfully and fully in the digital image. This can also be used in 16:9 mode just like any Alexa, so it's versatile even if you're not using anamorphic. This has the exceptional film-like organic image the Alexas are known for with extended clean highlights, low noise floor, natural skin tones, excellent color separation, and cinematic depth. Extremely rugged and reliable build with ergonomics and easy usability well considered. Form factor ideal for balanced shoulder use and on tripod. The newer Alexa Plus models have all the features of the Alexa Classic EV, but adds features such as: Arri wireless lens control system compatibility, electronic horizon, lens mount has LDS contacts (lens data system), extra monitor BNC out (1.5G HD-SDI), GPS function, lens synchronisation for 3D, a third RS accessory power output, built-in position and motion sensors, and quick switch BNC connectors. These come with the Alexa Plus 4:3 license bundle - which includes high-speed (120fps), DNxHD recording, and anamorphic de-squeeze standard. Can record in HD / 2K ProRes up to 4444 and HD DNxHD. This has the newest SUP 11.1.1 which allows 3.2K Pro Res at 16:9 (which is easily upscaled to 4K / 3.8K UHD). Also has the XR module upgrade just like the XT models have, so also can do internal ARRIRAW 2.8K as well (though note does not do Open Gate). This module uses capture card drive such as Codex CDX-3730. But can also use SxS Pro / Pro+ cards if adapter CDX-3790 (K2.48838.0) is installed. Can also work with qualfied SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0 card with use of adapter K2.48839.0. Maximum frame rates are: 16:9 ProRes HD at 120fps, 16:9 ProRes 2K at 60fps, 16:9 Prores 3.2K at 30fps. 16:9 ARRIRAW at 120fps, 4:3 Prores at 48fps, 4:3 ARRIRAW at 90fps. Some reduced frame rates at 4:4:4 when using SxS media instead of CFast 2.0 or XR capture drive. Additional features include: 14 stop dynamic range, EI 800 base sensitivity (160-3200 range), Log C / Rec 709 / DCI P3, audio recording over 5-pin XLR line level input, surround view, false color exposure check, peaking focus, color bars/tone, and much more. This has the XR module upgrade installed, allowing internal ARRIRAW onto CDX-3730 drives (adapter are available to allow Prores / DNxHD onto SxS / SxS Pro+, or Sandisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0 cards). The XR module makes this very similar to the Alexa XT model, except without Open Gate. Newest Sup 11.1.1 installed, unlocking 3.2K pro res recording in addition to HD / 2K. Also includes many valuable accessories: EVF-1 viewfinder with eyecup, long length viewfinder connecting cable, VMB-2 viewfinder mounting bracket, V-mount battery plate, CCH-1 center top handle, BP-13 bridge plate, sliding dovetail plate. This does not have shoulder pad or velcro for pad installed. This will ship in a hard case. The case is not in very good condition, but will provide extra protection in transit and is considered a "bonus" item. Cosmetically in acceptable condition for a professionally used Alexa - with just some paint wear, touchups, and scuffs on body - but no damage or indications of rough usage. Overall very presentable. This has a reasonable 3960 hours of use. All features, functions, sensor, connections and included accessories are tested in excellent working order.
  3. This is a media package for the Arri Alexa XT and Arri Alexa Plus 4:3 w/ XR module upgrade. It consists of the CDX-75002 dual drive reader (dock), 2x CDX-3730 512GB capture drives, Atto ThunderLink TLSH-1068-D00 Thunderbolt to 6Gb SAS/SATA Host, power supplies, and appropriate cabling. Each Codex CDX-3730 provides 512GB (480GB usable) of solid-state storage for your Alexa XT or Plus XR. Use of the Codex drives instead of a Cfast / SxS adapter allows internal ARRIRAW and unlocks maximum frame rates, resolutions, and recording times available for the camera. The Codex CDX-75002 is a mini-SAS Capture Drive Dock (reader for the CDX-3730). Has two drive slots (dual). The standard license for the software allows you copy Digital Camera Negative files (ARRIRAW, CanonRAW, DPX, or ProRes, depending on what format was recorded). This connects via SAS to the Atto Thunderlink TLSH-1068-D00. This allows you to then connect to your Mac via Thunderbolt cable. If you do not want to use Thunderbolt, you can not use the Thunderlink and connect the Codex CDX-75002 dock via an Atto ExpressSAS H680 card, a PCIe 2.0 Host Bus Adapter that would install into your Mac Pro desktop (or expansion chassis for MacBook Pro). The H680 card is not included in this package. These items are very rare on the used market and not available new anymore. This includes the CDX-75002 dual dock, 2x CDX-3730 drives, Atto Thunderlink, power supplies, and appropriate cables to connect everything. This is compatible with Mac only. Drivers / software for everything is available online (links will be provided). Some versions of OS X may not be compatible or would require older versions of software, so please check before purchase that it will work for you. Cosmetically the items have scratches and paint wear. There is one piece of plastic damaged on the dock, which is only cosmetic in nature. Overall in presentable condition. Everything is fully tested in excellent working order.
  4. Priced at $5,995. The Service Vision Scorpio Focus is an ultra high quality wireless digital cinema lens control system for Focus, Iris, and Zoom - i.e. FIZ. The hand unit can be connected to the motor driver box wirelessly (most common application) or wired. The motor driver box then is wired to the motors to control the lens. The hand unit has a focus wheel that can accept marking discs, iris slider with marking strip, and zoom potentiometer micro knob for iris - though any control can be assigned to focus, iris, or zoom as desired. The information display shows menu items, speed, total meters/feet counter, last take counter, signal coverage indicator, low battery indicator, camera status, and zoom position scales. Motor drive box can accept power between 11-30VDC. The hand unit is powered with NP-FM50 style batteries. Lenses are automatically calibrated either by connecting motor cable to motor or from the hand unit menu - this can be saved on memory when disconnecting the equipment. It is possible to add a second hand unit in master-slave mode. Two motors can also be synchronized or even six motors two-by-two when adding a second motor driver box, plus one can rescale mark by mark the second focus in regards to the first - so this is ideal for 3D applicaitons. One can set limits for any FIZ movements. Can also run camera start/stop control from the hand unit. This system is very versatile, with brackets, gears, driver cables, and power cables available for nearly any camera/lens configuration you can imagine. This includes 3x motors - 1x SB 92 (5101) digital motor and 2x standard S.C.O.R.P.I.O motor. One of the motors is a "clunker" and requires repair to work normally. The other two motors work very well with no problems or backlash, though note that they have re-glued cable connectors (which is cosmetic only in nature). So consider this a 2 motor kit, with a bonus motor which could be hypothetically be repaired if desired. This is a fully loaded package which includes: hard carrying case with custom foam, 4x motor cables, 3x blue Arri bushings, 2x gold Panavision bushings, 2x rod brackets for motors, bracket/shield and handle for hand unit, 3x genuine batteries, 2x generic chargers, a large collection of markings discs (all have marker on them which needs to be cleaned), a wide assortment of gears for many lens types, 4x motor cables, Arri run/stop cable, Arri power cable, zoom-iris command 6-pin cable, and misc parts/screws/antennas. This is a well-used system that has seen some time on set. It has heavy paint wear and brassing. There is velcro and electrical tape affixed in many areas. Some connectors are re-glued securely. Though there is no damages and it is mostly in good clean presentable shape if one gets past the mentioned cosmetic wear. This is fully tested to be in good working order. Reset to factory settings and calibrated. The only functional issue is one of the three motors is for parts/repair. Otherwise, this is a good working 2 motor system. Buyer is responsible to add any brackets, gears, cables, or other accessories as needed for their specific configuration if not included or pictured here.
  5. I forgot to put the pricing. . .selling for $2,925 which I believe is a fair price (based on what's included and the condition as described in detail in the listing).
  6. The C.E. CineTape is a ultrasonic measuring system range finder that continuously calculates the distance between the subject and the camera's film plane. Focusing is simplified, saving time and reducing production costs. Compatible with all lenses and cameras (with appropriate power cable). The sensor assembly has two horns that are connected to the measure control to calculate distance in either imperial or metric. A laser pen can be attached to the sensor assembly to help aim during calibration. The sensor has a threaded pan/tilt mount to attach to your rig. A simple offset adjustment programs the relationship between the film plane and where the sensor is mounted, so distance is calculated accurately. Sensitivity and Close Focus adjustments fine-tune it to your situation. This further includes a PLC Electronics remote wireless display package consisting of PLC-CRT-0147 cini remote transmitter and PLC-CRR-0153 cini remote receiver/reader. The transmitter attaches to the Cine Tape and wirelessly sends distance information to the receiver's display. This is ideal for any time the focus puller is not directly beside the camera or pulling focus remotely (steadicam, dolly, crane, cable rig, or any time there is not close proximity to camera). The receiver is powered via 9V battery. Includes Cine Tape itself, sensor/horns, PLC Electronics wireless cini remote display package, sensor extension tubes (provides tighter measuring area), sensor cable, remote cable, and 3-pin fischer RS cable to power from an Arri Alexa or similar. No other power cables included, so buyer must provide that if powering with other means. Cosmetically this has noticeable wear. There is paint wear on all items. Velcro is attached in many places (which is useful really). There is a grey bracket added to the Cine Tape measure control, which was glued on. The pan/tilt mount on the sensor horns was glued to it (it is sturdy but is glued on instead of screwed on). There is a bent antenna connector on the Cini Remote receiver, which does not affect functionality. Although this looks rough, it was used by professional crew and not abused. Although this has not been fully serviced/calibrated recently, it does not show signs of needing it, as it senses subject and measures accurately after calibration prodecures. PLC wireless kit works well too.

This has a reasonable 3115 hours of use. All features, functions, sensor, connections and included accessories are fully tested in excellent working order.
  9. This is the Steadicam Zephyr Arm for the Steadicam Zephyr camera stabilizer system. It's a great arm for a running rig, as it will support quite a lot of weight but is very light itself, yet very smooth (especially for its weight). Its armpost natively fits Zephyr, Flyer, Scout, and Pilot Rigs. Also appears to be the same as the A-30 arm included with the Aero 30. But with an easy to make armpost adapter it will carry bigger rigs too. You could also possibly use it to support other stabilizers, like gimbals from the vest or a hardmount. For example, using one section of the arm with a Movi. Note that any modifications or uses other than the intended purpose is not guaranteed, but many have done so successfully. This costs $3,995 new and is a major component of the Zephyr system. Selling here for $2,495. Clean cosmetic condition with only minor paint wear when looking carefully. Good working order without damage or issues.
