XTR vs XTR Prod

Recommended Posts

Hey been looking into an Aaton s16 camera but I'm a bit confused about the differences between the various models. I can't seem to find any clear cut answers anywhere. Thanks!

add to that list the Aaton XTR XC which is an XTR without any electronics which is what I have.....serial number 1599...according to Allan Giles in the UK (service guru) it was produced as like a back up for when you're out there in the middle of the jungle filming and your electronics on the other Aaton give up.....mine is a regular 16 as previous owners swapped out the S16 capabilities.....well documented on this forum hahah
