  1. In overall good condition. No fungus or haze. Smooth iris. A singe small scratch on the front element, a little bit of internal dust and some clear spots that I cant figure out what is. Maybe some oil droplets or air bubbles in a glass element itself? Haven't noticed any visual effect of any of the above. The lens is located in Denmark but I will ship worldwide upon request. Asking 350 dollars or 300 euro.
  2. Looking for a set of Kinetals with Arri S mount. Preferably 9mm, 17,5mm and 25mm.
  3. I'm planning to collect a set of Cooke Kinetals for my Arri16S. Someone who is considering selling a single lens or even a set? Prefereably 9mm, 17,5mm and 25mm.
  4. Thanks Tim. It took me a while to figure out exactly what model I had bought since I initially couldn't find any photos of other 16S with a light meter. I think it's called 16S/B-GS? The serial number is 18503 so yes it's probably one of the last ones. We bought it from the daughter of a former cameraman who worked on national danish television. The camera and the aluminium hardcase still has the television logo on them. Along with the camera, and the three Schneiders, the hardcase is packed with a lot of the original extras. A variable speed motor, an Angieneux 12-120mm zoom, periscope, mattebox, filters. Even an old and dry leather strap that I don't dare use with the camera even though it would look cool.
  5. Hi Marco. Did you buy the camera and did you get it serviced by Georg Bogner? I have recently acquired an Arri 16S in pristine condition. I works properly but before using it on a project I would like to get et serviced. From my research it seems like Georg Bogner is the last person here in Europe who stills service these cameras!
  6. And here is the camera. The light meter can be seen right under the Arriflex logo.
  7. Sorry - I totally forgot about this thread. We found a local guy who made us a v-mount battery plate. Basically it's just a v-mount plate and a voltage regulator set to 8.4 volt with a 4 pin output. It works perfectly. The light meter seems to be on point and the variable speed motor can run up to around 50fps. We still use the original 2 pin connector from the original power cable but it's pretty worn out and the solderings seems fragile. I came across a post on a facebook group regarding these connectors. Seems like there' a guy in Japan called Mr. Kosuge who makes them. Think his shop is called MUK Camera Service. Apparently they 3D print these connectors. I'm considering buying one to make a spare power cable as the original connector seems pretty fragile.
  8. Actually I think the constant speed motor that came with the camera could be the new model you're talking about. Is there a way to determine wether it's the new or the old one? Mine has a small box on the side - could that be the transistor your'e talking about? I'm pretty sure that the camera itself is on of the last that left the factory - it's from the beginning of 1975 according to Arri. It has a built in light meter which seems to be pretty rare? Regarding power supplies I've been looking into different solutions. I found a pretty standard Tilta V-mount plate that has a 8V output. To me it seems to be the easiest and hopefully most reliable solution. Probably not the cheapest though. Also I believe the original motors were built for 8V and not 8.4V. I could be wrong but remember I read it somewhere in one of the original manuals for the camera. For the light meter I guess it's quite important that the voltage correct?
  9. I did notice the Jensen motor but I'm a bit hesitant to place a bid on it since it's probably very old and since it's so difficult to find any information about it. If someone here knows anything about it please tell us everything you know 🙂 Right now I'm trying to find the simplest and most reliable solution for crystal sync but maybe I will look into the possibility of converting the existing motors to crystal sync in the future if it turns out to be too expensive.
  10. Hi Recently I bought an Arriflex 16S/B G/S in very beautiful condition (will probably make another post about it in the near future). It came in the original box with Schneider primes, Angieneux zoom and all the good stuff. It also came with the original constant speed motor and the variable speed motor. I'm now searching for a crystal sync motor preferably the the Tobin TXM-22A. From what I've read it seems like these are now discontinued? Therefore I would like to hear if there are someone here who want's to sell theirs?
  11. I'm also very curious about how you did the modification Arthur?
