Arriflex 16s serial numbers and dating.

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if somebody could run a serial number for me to see how old, and which version i have, serial is 13641, i believe it to be a gs model, but it doesn't have a bayonet mount.

My bad, serious mind fart. I was confusing the G/S model with the model that came out with the APEC door.

 

The G/S has the sound sync module on the back. It's a square shaped box on the back side of the camera. If you could post a pic of the back side of the camera, that would help.

 

Also, you can read more about the camera, in particular the G/S part, in the camera manual posted here:

Sorry Brendan, screw up on my part. This is the camera with the Apec door. Not necessarily a G/S. As pictured below:

See my modified post above for more info on the G/S.

ohh okay mine is not like that. mine has an arri 60hz pilot tone generator sticking on the side, has a spot on the bottom by the tri pod mount for a lamp, and had a clear plastic dome on the top by the hand grip. Must have misread the description on another post. and my pic didnt post for some reason

You're right Brendan, I was wrong. I confused the G/S with the APEC door version. Sorry.

 

If your camera is as you described, it sounds like it is a G/S model. The user manual I linked to above has info about the G/S model and how it is used.

 

Best,
