Arri 2b


Recommended Posts

Hi all -

 

I just purchased an Arri 2b and was wondering if anyone might have any advice on where to find accessories for it? I am in Los Angeles but am happy to mail order. I am looking for a battery specifically. Also looking for a manual. PDF or paper, doesn't matter to me. Any suggestions?

 

thanks to anyone who can lead me in the right direction!

Batteries are fairly easy to make from cells you can buy on line, and you'll save a bunch of money. You can make your own charger, too. What kind of motors do you have for it?

I advise all of my clients to run down to either the power tool shop and buy a DeWalt 18V battery and charger or just pick up a 12V and a 6V sealed lead acid pair. The latter will cost some $30 from Radio Shack, 3, 4, 5 amp hour capacity is fine.

 

18V will spin an Arri very well, it will not overheat a governed motor and it will give the full range of speeds up to 50 fps on a wild motor. You can use 12V on either motor but not with the versatility of 18V.

Any reason for preferring DeWalt over Bosch, Milwaukee, Makita, etc? I know Ryobi is low quality, but the rest are pretty good. It's a shame they all have their own proprietary interfaces.
