  1. In one of the book I am reading, it says "Most of them (HMI Lighting) run on 240 volts and can be used only with crystal cameras." I didn't get any clear information on crystal cameras in google search. What does crystal camera mean? Thanks.
  2. $900 Or Best Offer. Very rare item, in very good condition. These were only made circa 1982 for the Arri 3C, but are compatible with the 2C as well. 24 or 25 fps crystal switchable. Or, switch to variable mode (non-crystal) for other speeds. I was told the small 4-pin port is for connecting a speed controller for getting crystal sync at other speeds. Powers from 12V 4-pin XLR connector. Can run forwards or reverse - it has a switch for that. It needs a phenolic gear to connect to the drive gear at the bottom of the camera, but that's included with this motor. The motor has captive screws to attach to your 2C or 3C. No power cable included. This item is currently in Los Angeles with a friend. Thanks, Rich
  3. $1,000 Or Best Offer. This item is currently located with a friend in North Hollywood, CA. I'm based in Brooklyn, NY. For sale is this very rare Arri 3C Crystal Pistolgrip Motor. It's in very good condition for it's age. These were only made circa 1982 for the Arri 3C, but are compatible with the 2C as well. 24 or 25 fps crystal switchable. Or, switch to variable mode (non-crystal) for other speeds. I was told the 4-pin port is for connecting a speed controller for getting crystal sync at other speeds. Runs forwards or reverse (via switch). Powers from 12V 4-pin XLR connector. No power cable included. The motor has captive screws for attaching to your 2C or 3C. Needed phenolic gear is also included. Photos: https://flic.kr/s/aHskUsmaU7 Thanks, Rich

  5. Hi guys. Selling my lovely TOBIN TCS TXM-22 Crystal Sync Motor for Arri 16-S and 16-M. Bought from Du-All Cameras 2 years ago. Only tested, but never used. It´s as new. I will come up with a price and post pictures very soon. Just checking who might be interested. Please get in touch. Cheers. Flavio

This was bought new directly from Tobin and has only been run to test a few of times.

  7. I purchased this Arri 3C in the big Otto Nemenz auction around the middle of 2012. I did a registration test with good results after buying it but have otherwise not used the camera. Includes: - Arri 3C Camera body with PL mount port cap, body (magazine) port cap, accessory mounting bracket, Super 2.35 ground glass (could be Super 2.40, not sure) in shipping case. - Cinematography Electronics Crystal Motor Base (could also be used with an Arri 2C) - Arriflex 3C Crystal Handgrip Motor with screws and gear in plastic cup. - 6x 400' Arri 3 mags in 2x 3-hole mag cases - Jurgen's Orientable Video Door for 3C with Sony Color CCD camera. - Wide Angle Eyepiece (no rubber eyecup is included) - Arri grease - Arri Hand Held Door for 3C PICTURED BUT NOT INCLUDED: Extension Eyepiece. NOT INCLUDED: Rubber Eyecup, Power cables for camera motors to battery, power cables for Sony Color CCD, Balance Plate Top, Dovetail, Rods, Batteries, Lenses, etc. 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. It has a more sturdy hinged door, unlike the metal prongs which held on the 2C door to the body. That design was never intended for the weight of a Jurgen's door and I've seen a few 2C bodies that are wearing out where these prongs grip. 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. The 3C movement is the same as the 2C movement and motors, mags and of course ground glasses are interchangeable. The 3C is perhaps best know as the camera Arri made for the film "Das Boot" in the early 1980's. This means this camera isn't nearly as old as most 2Cs floating around out there. I know of four doors made for the 3C, although this package only includes two: Arri Orientable Door (which I've seen can be modified into a video split door) Arri Hand Held Door (included) Arri Straight Door (with optional anamorphic desqueeze module) Jurgen's Video Door (included) I should note, the door type is hinged, but it is not interchangeable with the Arri 3 door. The 3C doors are more rare, as not many of these cameras were made. Also, please see the picture with the note about compatibility with certain lenses due to the PL mount being centered for S35 (as opposed to Academy). Available for only $1,600 O.B.O!!! Available to see if you're in the LA area. For convenience, preference will be given if there is a local buyer who will pick up in person and pay cash.

  9. I was about to rent HMI Lighting (day light) for one of my shoot. I was told that HMI lighting can be used only with crystal cameras. What is crystal camera? I goggled it and couldn't get anything that are explained in layman terms. We are shooting in Canon 5D Mark II and Sony PMW-EX3 cameras. Thanks

  11. I'm selling my very rare Arriflex 16 Fiberglass Blimp. This is for use with either a 16S or a 16M and and mounting plates for both are included. This was purchased a few years ago from forum member Tim Carroll who also ran the great website www.arri16s.com. Tim did a beautiful job of restoring this gorgeous piece of filmmaking history. The lens pictured is not included. The 16M camera and mag is not included, although they are for sale separately (see separate listing). They are in these photos only to demonstrate how a camera would fit inside the blimp. I also am separately selling a Tobin TXM-22A motor that would go very well with this blimp. The blimp's shutter advance knob seems just a few mm too short to reach the Tobin's knob, so you may want to fashion an extension on the rubber knob that reaches toward the motor on the inside of the blimp. One of the two latches is broken on the wooden shipping case but everything made it to me ok with that broken and it's always held shut firmly enough with just the one latch. Also, the power cable that connects a 12V battery (4-pin Cannon) to the outside of the blimp will need to be rewired if you intend to use the blimp for anything besides decoration. This cable provides power for the camera inside to run, as well as power for the interior lightbulbs so you can push buttons and see things inside like the fps tachometer. The cable was just old and brittle and started melting in one spot (a couple of photos are included). The connectors both look fine, so I would guess a technician could make you a replacement cable or two. I just haven't had time to get that done. The seals on the two doors (the top magazine door and the side camera body door) don't seem quite as tight as they were a few years ago so that may be one other thing to have checked if you intend to use it for the purpose it was designed. When I first got this from Tim, it did an amazing job of silencing a very noisy 16S, but I have not tested it recently. The thought that went into the intricate design of this blimp is really impressive. It is in excellent condition. I would love to keep this as decoration for my apartment but I'm moving and I know I just won't have space, so I'm selling it. $800 O.B.O. Please send me a PM if interested. It's available to see in West Hollywood through Saturday. If that's too soon, I can coordinate another time for you to check it out. For convenience, preference will be given if there is a buyer in the LA area who will pick up in person and pay cash.
