  1. Is anybody out there still active in the business of converting Kinor 35 cameras to 2-perf? Any hints would be very welcome.
  2. Hi fellow Aaton users, hope you're all well and have purring kittens on your shoulders! My friend David Schweitzer and I are compiling a list of all the Penelopes around the world. Who owns one? What serial number do you guys have? If you don't own one, where do you rent it? Do you know how to service it? Who are your techs? For those of you who are on Facebook, please join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1870336556426483/ We're trying to create a mutual support group and information center for all things Shoulder Cat! we'd love to have you join us in the Quest! Merci bien, David
  3. I'd like to find a 2-perf, 3-perf or Super 16 camera. My budget is $3,000-5,000. My first choice would be for a 2-perf with a lens, second choice is a 3-perf with lens and third choice is a Super 16 with a lens. My range on price is with the expectation that a 2-per or 3-perf with a lens is going to be on the high end of my budget while a Super 16 with no lens should be at the low end. Of course if someone has an Arricam ST 2-perf with some Cooke lenses they like to sell me for $3,000, I'd be happy to be proven wrong on my price estimates. :D Seriously, if I'm way off on my price expectations, please let me know. If you have a film camera that's been sitting unused or under utilized, please consider dusting it off and sending it to a good home. I have a short I'd like to shoot in December with kids from the local theater club and crew from the local University. If we can pull that off, we've got plans for a feature to shoot in June.
  4. Up for sale is this completely serviced Techniscope Arri 2C camera. Sergio Leone made his first Spaghetti Westerns with one of these. 2-Perf will save you a lot of money in the long run. Your rolls of film will last twice as long! This one is built like a tank, with modern gears and a perfect 24fps motor and matte box. And guess what? It has a hard PL mount which means you can adapt modern lenses to it. The very bright custom viewfinder has a ground glass marked for both Techniscope and 1.78:1 aspect ratios. Techniscope is hot now due to DI technology and finer film grain. Flat base, an orientable viewfinder, a hinged door and matte box /rod system. All custom additions made at Aranda Film. Anyone who knows Bruce McNaughton's fine work knows he's recently posted here about moving away from making these brilliant modifications. I spent a lot on this but now due to unexpected circumstances I must sell it. Will include 58mm lens, 16V battery, matte box system with rods, and two 400ft magazines It is a practically free camera in that you are paying about as much as it would cost to modify one. My loss is your gain. Payment through PayPal only. See price on my sister's eBay store: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323245778571
  5. Hello, I was wondering if any Moviecam Compact Mark2 is inherently easy to switch between 4-perf and 3-perf movement. Thanks for your help!
  6. For sale is my beautiful 2-perf (Techniscope) Arri 3C (IIIC) camera package. This camera was never a rental and it looks like it's hardly ever been used, it's in such beautiful condition. I've owned it since 2009 and during that time I found and bought an original Arri factory 2-perf conversion kit, which was installed by the technicians at Clairmont Camera in North Hollywood. I'm guessing everyone here knows why 2-perf is so great. But just in case... basically you get twice the run time from the same amount of film. A 400' roll of 35mm film running at 24 fps lasts about 8 minutes instead of the usual 4 minutes. A 200' short end is suddenly not a pain to work with since it lasts about 4 minutes. So that means you spend half as much money on film stock and processing since that's paid by the foot, too. The aspect ratio is naturally 2.40:1 at the gate so it's well suited to that cinemascope look, but much less expensive than anamorphic on film stock/processing (not to mention lens rental costs). If you wanted to shoot 1.85:1 on this camera, you could have the ground glass pencilled with two vertical lines to create 1.85 within the 2.40, and you'd still have roughly twice as much negative area than if you shot 1.85 on Super 16. I know of a feature film that just wrapped which did exactly that. Some recent and beautifully-shot 2-perf films: "Hunger", "Shame", "The Place Beyond the Pines", "American Hustle", "The Fighter", "Silver Linings Playbook", to name a few. Includes: - Arri 3C Camera body with PL mount port cap, body (magazine) port cap, in custom shipping case - Custom-made by Shurco 2-perf 2.40:1 Arri-3 style ground glass, with clear plastic case - Panavision (PV) Mount (PL mount currently installed, centered on Academy, not Super) with some shims - Cinematography Electronics Crystal Motor Base (could also be used with an Arri 2C, best motor you can get for these cameras) - Arriflex 3C Crystal Handgrip Motor (12V) with screws and gear (could also be used with an Arri 2C, a very rare item) - Italian Flatbase Motor Adapter Plate for above handgrip motor (ECE - ROME), untested - Custom Samcine Hand Held Support Brackets for IIC/IIIC in small hard shipping case - 2x 400' Arri 3 mags in a 2-hole mag case - 4x 200' Arri 3 mags in a 4-hole mag case. Note, two of the mags need some minor servicing. One looks like it's never been used - 2x 400' Fromm Shoulder Mags with spare rubber belt drives and 1x adjustable shoulder bracket (no case) - Jurgen's Orientable Video Door for 3C with Sony Color CCD camera - Arri Hand Held Door for 3C - Arri Orientable Door for 3C - Arri Straight Door for 3C with 2x Anamorphic desqueeze lever - Flat cover for above Straight Door if anamorphic dequeeze module is to be removed - Wide Angle Deniz Eyepiece with rubber eyecup that has shutter that can close - Spare Arri Eyepiece with rubber eyecup -push eye against eyecup to open shutter type, helps prevent light leaks - 1x Jurgen's Extension Eyepiece - 1x Arri Extension Eyepiece - 1x Arri Right Handgrip (no on/off switch) Arri Rosette style attachment - 1x Rosette to Rosette extension arm (adapter bracket needed/not included to use with above handgrip). Bracket pictured in hand held mode is not included) - 1x Unknown Brand Balance Plate Top A35/S35 switchable, like BP-9 (for 15mm rods) - 1x Van Diemen Balance Plate Bottom (Dovetail) ~12" - 2x 12V 4-pin XLR to 4-pin XLR power cables, one with a pigtail - 3x Power Cables for Jurgen's Video Door - 2x Medium Carbon Fiber rods (15mm) - 2x Medium rods (15mm) - 2x Short rods (15mm) - 1x SR2/SR3 type LWS 15mm bracket with 2x screw-in extension rods (for attaching to front of CE Flat Crystal Motor Base - Arri grease The inching knob (shutter/frame advance knob) has three holes drilled in it which was done to attach a hand-crank module from Clairmont Camera for a commercial (shot before the 2-perf conversion). Due to the 2-perf conversion, the Cinematography Electronics Crystal motor base does not count footage correctly. Simply divide the readout by half for an accurate footage count. I've created an album on Flickr with quite a few photos. On the wide photo with everything, you may notice two smudges. I've erased two items which I realized after the fact have no relevance or use with this package. I've also included some frame grabs from a music video I made with this camera after the 2-perf conversion. It was a joy to shoot with, performing flawlessly with not one instance of a hair in the gate. It was almost entirely shot with short ends of 200' or less. If you're not familiar with the 3C, you could think of it as the final refinement of the 2C before the Arri 35-3 came out, mostly designed as a result of engineering Arri did to the 2C for the German WW2 film "Das Boot". It has an orientable door which keeps the horizon level as you reposition the eyepiece up or down (on the 2 doors here that let you swivel the eyepiece up/down). It has a more sturdy hinged door (not interchangeable with the Arri 35-3 door), unlike the metal prongs which hold the 2C door to the body. That design was never intended for the weight of a Jurgen's video door and I've seen a few 2C bodies that are wearing out where these prongs grip, making it risky that the door could fall off. The 3C came from the factory with a PL mount, and it has a very nice crystal handgrip motor which is often sought after since it works just as well on the 2C. Something else I like about the 3C, they have a variable shutter, something that's hard to find on a 2C. The 3C also has a rosette for mounting accessories, right by the inching knob. The 2C doesn't have that. This is a beautiful example of the very rare Arri IIIC. The 3C movement is the same as the 2C movement and motors, mags and of course ground glasses are interchangeable. It took me many years to assemble this package so at least initially, I won't consider splitting off pieces of it. That said, feel free to get in touch if you're interested in something, and I'll keep you in mind. Available for $6,500 Or Best Offer. Available to see in NYC or Los Angeles, if you cover shipping costs to LA. For convenience, preference will be given if there is a buyer in the NYC (1st) or Los Angeles (2nd) area who will pick up in person and pay cash. I live in NYC but have friends/family in LA who can coordinate a sale in LA for me. Please check out the pictures and shoot me a private message if you're interested or if you have any questions. Thanks for looking! Rich https://flic.kr/s/aHskwM83a3
  7. Eclair Cameflex CM3 35mm 2-perf techniscope camera for sale. I'm asking 2400USD for it. This camera is one rare 2-perf techniscope modified CM3 with PL mount. For those not aware of 2-perf, it basically is a modification which allows you to shoot Cinemascope directly on the neg reducing the stock cost to about 50%. I bought the camera from Film-camera-kit UK in 2011, and have never used it. I bought it from them in good working condition and maintained. I have only unpacked the camera and since then it has been stored, since I did not have time for my original intention of shooting shorts with it. Now I figure it's better to sell this beauty to someone who will have more time for it. Included: Tobin crystal sync motor Tobin Time Lapse motor (Originally for Bolex, but works with CM3) 2 400ft mags 2 200ft mags 2 100ft mags 15mm rods Batteries not included. Can ship it anywhere for additional cost. Not sure about the shipping fee's. But will check it out for the buyer location if interested. Item located in Sweden Mail me at erik@luminante.com if interested. Best Regards, Erik
