XTR Plus regrets?

Recommended Posts

I've been watching XTR Prods but finding them just out of my financial reach right now. However, I'm now looking at an XTR Plus that looks really nice and I might be able to swing the price. At this point, I don't know if it's the 60 or 75 fps version but am finding out. If I take advantage of this and grab the Plus, am I going to regret not holding out for a Prod? Thanks, Tom


This does have the Aaton mount rather than PL which I would have preferred.

All of the Aaton's can run on 12v, so that's not an issue. My batteries are all 14v though.


Aaton made 4 generations of XTR. The "Plus" is gen 3, the "Prod" is gen 4 and the Prod + is just an update to the magazines and maybe software.


The XTR Prod has a few key features... These are the ones I can remember.


- A brighter 35mm style viewfinder

- Adjustable shutter angle

- 72fps(infinitely variable speed control from 6fps to 72)

- Timecode capable

- More efficient on battery usage

- Better video tap (in most cases)

- Removable 1.85:1 ground glass standard

- PL mount (super 16/standard 16) standard

- Tools in the handle grip

- Aaton glow

- Blacklit display
