I will be getting a few 100ft 16mm daylight reels to shoot in an Arri 16SR. Now I am wondering if it would make sense to re-spool them onto cores or if I'd rather use the daylight reels directly. If I wanted to use cores, I'd have to spool the 100ft onto another reel, then re-pool that reel onto a core inside a split reel, am I right? The downside I see here is that I'd spool the entire 100ft twice and may introduce dust or even worse some scratches. From what I have read so far, using the daylight reels directly just leads to a louder camera, does anyone know of any other real issues that may arise? Besides that I was told by the owner of the camera (I will borrow it for two days) that the daylight reels cannot fit in the magazines. How could that be true? Isn't every Arri 16SR able to use them, as soon as you remove the core adapter you will then see a normal square thingy, similar to what Krasnogorsk, Bolex and the likes have, which fits the square hole of the daylight reels, right? What would you propose? Thanks!
