  1. Hello, I'm doing a bit of a clear out and selling some Aaton mount adaptors that I don't use (converted my Aaton to PL) There are 4 in total. Aaton to Arri Standard, Aaton to Arri Bayonet, Aaton to Leica R and Aaton to Nikon F 150 each or 450 for all of them together - if you have an Aaton this really opens up the possibilities in terms of using great, affordable older lenses. Pictures here. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15SwO0C8ED-S7VW9rfgAaf1S7gMfSBbLj?usp=share_link I'm not 100% sure on the original manufacturer of these mounts. They came with an Aaton LTR54 that I bought some years ago. I have since had that camera fitted with a PL mount and so am not using these mount adaptors. I had very good use from the Nikon F mount adaptor using my older Nikon lenses. Results were great. I didn't use the other adaptors. All the mounts are very solid construction - have tried to find out original manufacture and think it may have been Les Bosher. The camera itself was definitely serviced by ICE though - so maybe through them. The Arri B mount adaptor looks very similar to this from Visual Products: https://visualproducts.com/product/arri-b-mount-to-aaton-lens-mount/ Thanks! Any questions let me know.
  2. **** Please read note on processing **** Hi I'm selling two cans of expired Fuji Eterna 500 16mm stock. On ebay germany but happy to ship internationally https://www.ebay.de/itm/295185515195?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=707-127634-2357-0&ssspo=2eSKuPaTRNO&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY The film is expired but has been kept in very good condition, always refrigerated. One can is fully sealed, the other one is almost full 360ft. I shot 40ft as an exposure test to make sure the stock was still usable - which it definitely seems to be! I would suggest exposing at 250 ISO instead of the rated 500 but otherwise all good - see the link here for the test: *** Wanted to be very up front and clear - some labs are no longer processing Fuji Eterna stocks. For example Cinelab in London do not process. However, there are other smaller labs that definitely still do - for example on8mil in London (which is where I had the test processed. But perhaps make sure there is a lab you can use before purchasing. Thanks! Greg
  3. Still available - price 450 euros now, happy to ship
  4. Just quick update - In terms of postage/shipping - Ebay's automatic postage pricing is off and doesn't include any insurance. Within Europe - fully insured, around 90 euros, depending on speed and carrier DHL/UPS/Fedex fully insured courier outside of Europe - around 130 euros depending on carrier and speed. Thanks!
  5. I am selling my Cooke Varopanchro Super 16 zoom lens. It is 10-30mm and a very fast T1.6 throughout. Have put it on sale on Ebay Germany but should be fine to accept international bids (let me know if you have any problems) - https://www.ebay.de/itm/294844101109 Cooke only made a very limited number. A version of this lens was used to shoot scenes in the film Carol. Gives wonderfully cinematic images that you would expect from a Cooke. The focus, Aperture and zoom are all very smooth. The glass is clean and free from any fungus, fogging or scratches. I recently had my Aaton LTR serviced and had the techs have a quick look at the lens and they confirmed it was in very good condition, especially the movement of the zoom and focus given the lens' age. There is however a tiny chip on the rear element (see note and pictures in google drive) but it does not affect image quality. It is currently fitted with an Aaton mount and that is what I have been using it with. I have an Aaton LTR and have shot work and tests with this lens. It's really beautiful. I cut together a small selection of Super 16 footage shot with this exact lens and my LTR - link below. I didn't adjust the image beyond making an H.264 from what I received from the different labs. The lens comes with it's own flight case, two small rods for focus and zoom control, an extra PL mount (see note below) and a specific lens support for 15mm rods. An amazing, crazy fast Super16 lens perfect for your Aaton, Arri SR, 416 or newer digital cameras with a Super16 crop sensor. I'm based in Berlin but very happy to look into options for Worldwide shipping, just get in touch. If you have any further questions please feel free to get in touch. Very happy to help. Google drive link with photos of the lens and also Super16 footage and tests shot with the lens. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xRQ1HOS7LTbsQhG94GLRFEmYQJshYRy_?usp=sharing Vimeo link of 16mm footage shot with this lens https://vimeo.com/684172700/794033d2e3 Some extra info on the lens: https://www.oldfastglass.com/cooke-1030mm-t16 Ed Lachmann interview in which he mentions using his personal version of this lens when shooting Carol: https://www.fdtimes.com/2016/01/29/ed-lachmans-super-16-carol/ **** Two important notes - one on the tiny chip on the rear element and one on the included PL mount - Might seem like overkill on the info front - but please don’t let this put you off, I just wanted to be as up front as possible and give lots of info to a potential buyer **** There is a tiny chip on the rear element. I have tried to photograph it as clearly as possible. There are more photos in the google drive link below. This chip, as far as everything I have shot with the lens, does not affect the image. All the footage in the google drive was shot with this lens and the tiny chip. I spoke with someone at a rental house as of course wanted to try and give as clear information on this as possible when selling. They said that if it's not influencing the image on footage coming back then that's great, the only time it might be visible would be under certain flaring conditions? For this reason, I did some tests this week, where I tried to flare the lens and also shot some charts to check for any aberrations showing in the image. These are included in the google drive too. I can't see any sign of this tiny chip on the image but I would definitely encourage anyone bidding to check for themselves all of the footage. PL mount - there is a PL mount with a selection of shims included in the auction. I have never used the PL mount apart from this week when I did some Digital Tests with a Canon c500 on Super16 sensor crop (see the google drive). I am definitely not a lens tech and when mounting the PL mount on the lens the spacing was not correct. I couldn't get the right number of shims to keep the lens parfocal and or maintain infinity focus quite correctly. It was fine to shoot some tests but if you would like the lens in PL then I would 100% recommend taking it to a proper lens tech to set it up and collimate it properly/get the spacing correct and adjust the mount as necessary. It will be shipped to the buyer setup perfectly with its Aaton mount - included in the videos is a Zoom test, shot on 16mm with my Aaton LTR. It is perfectly parfocal and has very little/unnoticeable breathing.
  6. Hello, I'm selling an Arri MMB-1 Mattebox. I bought this mattebox to accommodate the larger front diameter of a lens which I am now also selling. So don't need it anymore. It is in used but perfect working order. There's some light markings for example on the support where the rods slide but condition is very good. Comes with a full list of accessories, most of which can also be used interchangeably with the MMB-2: Arri MMB-1 with 138mm clamp 2x Filter trays 4x4 2x Filter trays 4x5.56 Arri Side Flags Arri top flag Arri MMB rubber bellows Screw in reduction rings - 114,91,85 and 2x 80mm Pictures here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1lrPuqw3EKLgIZYwNQcuE6s7g2oyLzNyH?usp=sharing Based in Berlin but can ship. €600 Thanks a lot, Greg
  7. This is a bit of a last minute appeal. I'm meant to be testing an Arricam in Istanbul and our stock for tests has been majorly held up by customs. Just wondered on the very slim chance if anyone might have a single roll of 35mm that I could buy and later replace. Wouldn't matter which stock as long as it was within date. Please let me know if you have any leads. Thank you!! Greg
  8. Hi, recently bought a secondhand Sachtler tripod. Included was this VCT-14 Baseplate which I have no use for. It is a quite well worn/used Sony baseplate but still working perfectly and built very sturdily - many years use left. Pictures here - can send better quality on request. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1i59fzrxBcV1fOVZ6MH8xceaKB1MarEkJ?usp=sharing looked around for similar products (below) to gauge a suitable price and think because it is obviously got a fair bit of wear €90 seems about right. Collection in Berlin or can post. https://cvp.com/product/ex-showroom-sony_vct-14 https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/sony-vct-14-stativadapterplatte-tripod-adapter-plate/1613053298-245-9668 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-VCT-14-Quick-Release-Camera-Tripod-Adapter-Plate-XDCAM-DVCAM-HDCAM-38B/324465328217?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D6a7ab76c9fa14c879c842bd55ea5c31e%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D124572540441%26itm%3D324465328217%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057%26brand%3DSony&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A399df768-71f2-11eb-9564-6684f49a29fc|parentrq%3Ab574e4491770a9c4c0c4333dffc79536|iid%3A1
  9. Hi Have an Arri LWS made for the SR3 (will also fit SR2) Allows you to attach 15mm rods. Item is pictured here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1tceJmbQAqVE1Ut-hD4SgP5zMo0BQrItX?usp=sharing Any questions just drop me a line. Asking €150 - I'm based in Germany but happy to post internationally. It's not a heavy part so probably wouldn't cost much.
