For Sale: 2-Perf Arri 2C IIC Techniscope "Sergio Leone" Camera

Recommended Posts

Up for sale is this completely serviced Techniscope Arri 2C camera. Sergio Leone made his first Spaghetti Westerns with one of these. 2-Perf will save you a lot of money in the long run. Your rolls of film will last twice as long!

 

This one is built like a tank, with modern gears and a perfect 24fps motor and matte box. And guess what? It has a hard PL mount which means you can adapt modern lenses to it.

 

The very bright custom viewfinder has a ground glass marked for both Techniscope and 1.85:1 aspect ratios. Techniscope is hot now due to DI technology and finer film grain.

 

Flat base, an orientable viewfinder, a hinged door and matte box /rod system. All custom additions made at Aranda Film.

 

I spent a lot on this but now due to unexpected circumstances I must sell it. Will include battery and two 500ft magazines.

 

Asking only $5000. My loss is your gain.

 

Lens shown is not included.

Dropping price to $4500 for fellow posters.

Very tempting ! Wish it wasn't such a hassle importing camera stuff from America to UK.

Does this mean, Samuel, you're not doing your 2018 project on 2-perf now ?

It's not really a hassle, you just write on the box/paperwork "camera returning to owner from repair". ;-)

 

No, we won't be doing it on 2-Perf since we're selling the camera at a huge loss.

I'm pretty sure Samuel sold it on, but wait to see if he turns up here. I wish I'd bought it! I'm also pretty sure Bruce McNaughton of The Aranda Group, Australia, has a couple of 2 perf cameras still for sale.

It was sold Suddenly, Last Summer. Yes it came from Bruce from Aranda.

 

Interesting, I hadn't checked this forum in a while and I check in today and find out someone posted on my old thread the same day.
