FS: Arriflex 16SR, Arri Sound Blimp & Bolex Accessories

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


Well last year I was selling a bunch of gear before moving to South America. Some of it never sold and I'm back in the States for a short visit and still need to go ahead and try to get rid of it instead of letting it sit in my storage unit. I need to have all this sold before May 12th.


I've tried to price them as low as I can to get rid of them quickly. There is some wiggle room for some of the more expensive items. Reasonable deals can be made if buying several items.


There are no shipping costs for local pickup in Valrico, Florida.



Arriflex 16SR + Accessories - $800 + $50 shipping
It works fine and it works great with the blimp below. I bought this used from a dealer. The viewfinder is clear with no yellowing. The camera runs smoothly.
1 - Arriflex 16SR 16mm motion picture camera
1 - Eyepiece with eye cup
2 - 400' cartridges
1 - Battery Adapter
1 - Power cable
1 - Power adapter for plugging the camera into an outlet,
Arri Talbot SR Sound Blimp - $400 + $50 shipping
1 - Arri Talbot SR Sound Blimp with connector cables inside
I'm selling a very unique Arri Talbot Sound Blimp for the Arriflex 16SR camera. It reduces the noise level to absolute ZERO! When the camera is inside, you plug in the wires and you are able to completely control the camera from the buttons on the outside of the blimp. The blimp also has rails on the front. I've never seen one of these anywhere else. It's extremely heavy so you'll have to use it on a heavy duty tripod.
If you want to buy the Arriflex SR16 and the Sound Blimp together - $1000 + $100 shipping
I also have some items for the Bolex Rex5 & Rex4:
Bolex Rex 5 Film Magazines - $250 + $40 for shipping
You can own two film magazines for your Bolex Rex 5 including a leather sound cover and vintage carrying case today! These film magazines allow you to use 400' rolls of 16mm film with your Bolex Rex 5. They are in good condition and work great. *Note the grey & color cards and scrims in the pictures are not included.
Sound Blimp for a Bolex Rex 4 - $200 + $40 shipping
You can own a custom made sound blimp for your Bolex Rex 4 today! It reduces the noise made by the Rex 4 to near zero. There is a non-crystal sync motor inside that works. Only a Bolex Rex 4 will fit inside this housing. A replacement rubber collar is needed for the power cable to seal it in the opening. Front glass is cracked (not shown in the photos) and will need to be replaced.
Shipping costs listed are for buyers in the lower 48 states. I know many of you may be in other countries and as long as we can work out shipping costs, I will ship to most counties if using Etsy to pay. You must cover the full cost of shipping. If in doubt, please ask. Thanks.
Shipping for heavy items will be done via Amtrak: Amtrak is a great, safe way to ship heavy items.
You can pay by credit card or Paypal through Etsy. If you don't want to pay through Etsy, and you want the item(s) shipped to one of the lower 48 states, I can accept payments via Stripe as well. Billing and shipping addresses must be the same.
Please feel free to ask me if you have any questions about any of these items and I will answer as best I can.

I'm willing to sell all of these items together for $1100 if anyone is interested.

You will need to be in the lower 48 states so it can be shipped by Amtrak.

The prices in this listing were posted almost 2 years ago when I was in a crunch to leave. These prices are no longer valid and will be higher when I relist them.
