Arri 16-S

Recommended Posts

I'm taking a course this summer where I will be using an old arri 16-S extensively. I own a bolex, and that is my only experience on film. Could somebody please compare the cameras for me? Does light leak through the viewfinder, can it run for longer than 30 seconds at a time, etc. All info is very much appreciated

There is LOADS of information out there on this camera. Just searching google should bring up about 12 billion pages worth.


To answer your questions, it's battery powered, so it will run however long you need it to.


Here are some quick resources, you can search for more I think.
