Aaton XTR - found weird tape on magnetic disk. Any thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am in process of choosing and buying aaton camera, and i found one local offer in Russia, where i am now. I came to see it, overall camera in mediocre condition, and almost no accessories. I ran 50ft of film through it, and all sounds camera made are very quiet and pleasant.

But there is one really weird thing i found on body:



So there is magtetic disc on body and i dont know why - its covered by something, like plastic, or tape or thin metal. I havent seen anything like that before. Its always clear magnetic disc. Do you guys have any idea what is it? Is it something typical and known? Or crazy russian mechanic tortured it without any knowledge?

Mine is on a film right now but it has a white plastic disk there with metal "dots" which is the mag drive for the magazine.


Maybe the cosmetic disc is missing? If you can get the camera for a good price and it runs you might be able to get that as a spare part.
