Aaton A-Minima spooling
Boris Kalaidjiev posted a topic in AatonHi everyone, I know this question has been asked a lot and has been talked a lot about but I still dont quite understand it 100%. I have an upcoming feature on the A-minima and the rental house and lab have unfortunately very few spools, maybe 10-15. That means that during our production we would probably have to spool film on to the spools on our own, shoot and unspool onto normal 16mm cores so that we can re-use the A-minima spools again. I know that what we get is normally B wounded film and the A-minima needs A wound film (emulsion out). But how do you get from B to A? I have a very primitive drawing that I will attach hopefully its not wrong. Thanks a lot!!
A-Minima + Denz VCSC D2000 or GoPro with C-mount
Boris Kalaidjiev posted a topic in AatonHi everyone, I am about to shoot a feature and the second camera that I am getting is an A-Minima. But for the purpose of the shoot I won't be able to look through the viewfinder so I am really relying on the Video Tap for framing. But I am not sure how great the BW video tap is for lowlight situations with 500T outdoors and a lot of NDs. So far I have 2 ideas that are at my disposal not sure if either one of them works. 1) Try to fit a Denz VCSC D2000 video tap on the the camera but I think that might defeat the purpose of the camera being small. 2) I have a GoPro10 with a C-mount (I have attached a photo). Not sure if when the original BW Video Tap is removed if it could be somehow be custom modified to accept the C-Mount GoPro. Or to somehow attach the GoPro directly to the viewfinder? What is the mount on the A-Minima that accepts the video tap, is there a name or is it something proprietary to Aaton? The GoPro sensor size is 1/2.3 (6.17 x 4.55 mm) is this too small to cover the whole frame? My main question is if you remove the original video tap from the camera could you not shim/modify it so that you get to the right flange distance and fit the GoPro. I prefer the GoPro because it's a lot smaller. If you have any experience on using GoPros as video taps please let me know what you think! Thanks a lot!

For sale: Aaton A-minima kit. Europe
Kalle Folke posted a topic in Cine MarketplaceHi! I recently got a Arri 416 so I've decided to sell my Aaton A-minima kit (I can't have it all, haha). It's ex-rental and was inspected by Aaton themselves before I bought it at beginning of 2015. Batteries have new cells. Everything works just perfect except for the built in light meter dome that I choose to not have Aaton fix since it's more of a gimmick then a useful feature in my opinion. Would prefer a Eu-sale, but I may ship world wide depending on the circumstances. Pick up in Stockholm, Sweden would be great :) Great kit to pick up and start shooting. Contact me if you're seriously interested and we'll take it from there regarding price etc. Best regards/Kalle Folke, Sweden www.kallefolke.se List of the kit: 1x Aaton A-Minima 1x PAL b/w video assist 3x magazines with covers 1x Aaton Cha-3 charger with cables 2x A-Minima batteries (new cells) 1x top-handle 1x Aaton power base 2x rods for power base ca 2,5tum 2x rods for power base ca 5tum 1x manual 2x extra rubberbands for eyepiece 1x cover for video assist port Cables: 1x 4-pin lemo - 4-pin xlr 1x 4-pin xlr male-female 1x long start/stop-cable lemo-lemo 1x "super long" start/stop-kabel with switch 1x start/stop-kabel for top-handle Also empty spools and film cans for re-spooling of film.

WTB Aaton A-Minima
Kalle Folke posted a topic in Cine MarketplaceHi! I'm looking for a used Aaton A-minima. All offers considered, but if possible I'd like a kit with the following: 3-4mags, powerbase, wooden handgrip, batteries and charger, blimp, top handle, PAL video assist. EU sale preferred if possible. Sadly for any seller I've seen that the prices for A-minimas have gone down quite a lot… but if you sell to me you'll at least know that it will be loved and used :) Looking forward to hear from you! Take care/Kalle, Sweden (contact info at www.kallefolke.se)

A-Minima Camera Jams
Christa Haley posted a topic in 16mmHello, I am a film student working with the A-Minima for the first time, we are renting the equipment from outside the school so I'm trying to find answers about a few problems we've had with the camera. We've had two jams- one about 100ft into the roll, where the film wrapped around the camera at least 8 times ruining about 15ft of film. The second, in the very beginning of the roll the film broke off and none of the film advanced. We heard the first jam happen, but the second we did not. Wondering what might have caused this problem? When we took off the mag to reload after our second jam, the magazine would not snap back onto the camera. I've read a number of threads where people have mentioned the hastle of loading and threading the A-Minima, but none with specific problems. Does anyone have an idea of what might be wrong? And how to tell if the film isn't advancing? Thank you!
