  1. Yes the silver ring unlocks the lens to be removed.
  2. Hi Elliott, Posting an image of the lens in question may help. If I recall correctly I believe the CP-16A lens has a silver ring that unlocks the lens from position to be adjusted/removed. Once the ring is loose I believe you also have to rotate the lens to remove it.
  3. What kind of connector is used for the battery/power on an Arriflex 16bl? Does anyone know of a place selling a conversion cable to 4pin xlr? Thanks!
  4. For my Arriflex I've had good luck using rechargeable RC car/plane batteries. There were several available in the same rating as my original batteries and they work pretty well with the Arri. Never tried one on the Cp16 but imagine it should work the same.

  6. If you're still looking for a cp16 battery Charger I've just listed one on ebay as well as a power supply to run the camera from the ac wall power.

  8. I recently got an old CP-16A and am trying to restore it to working condition however it has one problem. When I plug it in to ac and run it nothing happens. If I leave the run button on for several minutes it will eventually start to run but very slowly. After a few more minutes it will start to run faster but never reaches sync speed (the red light is always on). If at any point I turn the run switch off the process starts back from the beginning. The power supply is good, it's giving off 20 vdc at 3 amps and I tested the camera with another power supply alligator clipped to the battery terminals and got the same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to repair this myself without having to send it in. I'll link a video where you can see the speed ramping up and down on it's own. At the point I'd taken the video the camera had been powered on about 10 minutes.
