Hello, I'm thinking about getting a 35mm motion picture film camera to rent in my area as no one else is, but I don't want to spend that much on it as truth be told I'm not that passionate about the look nowadays as I am with super 16 because it lacks the texture I like in film but I otherwise I like the look of it in terms of lenses vs super 16 so in order to get a feel for it I thought of getting a 2c as for it's price on the market it rents out well and has so many accessories to customize but it's an mos camera, meaning it's loud and that would work against me but I really want it, so I ask, is there any way to make the 2c work with the dedicated blimp that makes it as big as an imax camera? Are there any parts I can get that's not the 2c blimp that I could use to shoot sync sound with this camera like say the georg jenson motor for the 16s allowed that to shoot sync sound or is it not that simple?
I'm thinking one of my Arri 2c magazines has a leak since some footage has come back throbbing. Is there a method for testing this? Like closing a little light inside it and see if you can detect any light coming through in a dark room? Thanks!
I've recently acquired a 2c with a constant speed, and a variable speed motor, and now my question is the best way to power them. I was told 16 volts is the appropriate type for this camera. One of my Aaton batteries happens to be running 15.6 volts and seems to power the constant speed motor fine, but for high speed stuff, would a 24 volt motor be a problem? 12/24v batteries seem way more common. Thanks.
I've been watching an ARRI 2C on ebay. Looks nice, but the seller has a Cine 60 "battery pack" attached to the base of the camera which the constant speed motor/handgrip is also sitting on. I contacted the seller and was told that it's a battery pack, but it looks more like a charger to me. But doesn't the motor need to be connected to a power cable during operation, in any case? So what is the purpose of this other than making the camera bulkier? I'm probably missing something very obvious. Hopefully, someone can enlighten me. Here are two photos:
