Hi everyone! I'm a young filmmaker that has recently decided to dedicate myself completely to shooting on film. I've been shooting 16mm for years, but have never owned a camera myself. I've decided to invest in a camera as I'm always on the go, and to keep borrowing cameras is getting too complicated. I'm searching for either an Eclair ACL II or the Aaton LTR 54 (also open to LTR 7).
Hi everyone, I own an Aaton LTR 7, and I was hoping someone would be able to offer some advice on a bridge plate / rig that would be compatible. The wooden grip handle that came with the camera constantly comes loose and is more annoying than practical for handheld shooting. I'd prefer to just sort a set up with rails and moose bars that I can adjust more easily. I found an ARRI BP-5 on ebay but it seems that they work best with 35mm / Digital cameras. Can anyone recommend an alternative bridge plate that could work? Any suggestions/ recommendations would be super appreciated! Thanks
Hello I'm a writer currently at work on a novel in which one of the main characters is a cinematogapher/auteur. (he's making a documentary). He uses an Aaton LTR 54 and the story is set in the late '70s - early 80's. I've tried without success to get my hands on one these cameras and I'm aware that merely reading a cinematography manual will only give me a fairly superficial idea of what it is to make such a film using this sort of camera. However, at the moment it's the best I can do. Aside from a reasonable grounding in the technicalities of the LTR I'm mainly interested in the practicalities of shooting in certain kinds of natural light (indoors and out), weather conditions, and so on. If there's anyone who can recommend a good cinematography manual on the basics of shooting 16mm, (and if possible, with an Aaton LTR) I'd be very grateful if you'd respond to this. Many thanks, Graeme Williamson
