The Arriflex 435 is a movie camera product line created by Arri in 1995 to replace the Arriflex 35III line. The number reflects its position as a successor camera to the Arri III and the fact that it is designed for 35 mm film. The 435 cameras are specifically designed as MOS cameras, which means that they are conventionally considered to be too loud to record usable location sound. However, this also frees the camera up to be optimized for non-sync sound uses, particularly any filming which either doesn't require sound or shooting at non-sync speed, shooting in reverse, or ramping between different speeds. As such, its potential applications are widespread, and thus it is regularly used onmusic videos, commercials, second unit work on features, special effects work, and motion control, among other usage. It is currently considered to be the most popular 35 mm movie camera in usage[citation needed], due to its wide range of production adoption, intuitive design, high reliability, and retail availability. Rival Panavision even owns more 435s for rental than Arri's own hire houses; Panavision's, however, can be converted to Pan-435s where they are modified to accept Panavision lenses and accessories. In recognition of the achievements of the 435 system, AMPASawarded Arri a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award in 1999.

A new FEM (Functional Expansion Module) was added in 2003 to increase the camera's electronic feature set. Arri integrated this into the new 435 Xtreme, which was released in 2004. The new functions included faster ramping speed capability, a wider ramping range which could go down to 0.1 frames per second, further motion control interface abilities, integrated lens electronics, and integrated wireless radio signalling.


Three more accessories were released in 2005, exclusively for the 435 Advanced and 435 Xtreme: a hand-crank extension, a timing shift box to offset the phasing, and a remote LCD control panel designed for use on the "dumb side" of the camera.

long live Wikipedia!

And there are lots of lenses available. I think there's someone in Mumbai who has one!
