WTB 2-Perf, 3-Perf or Super16 Camera

Recommended Posts

I'd like to find a 2-perf, 3-perf or Super 16 camera. My budget is $3,000-5,000.

 

My first choice would be for a 2-perf with a lens, second choice is a 3-perf with lens and third choice is a Super 16 with a lens.

 

My range on price is with the expectation that a 2-per or 3-perf with a lens is going to be on the high end of my budget while a Super 16 with no lens should be at the low end. Of course if someone has an Arricam ST 2-perf with some Cooke lenses they like to sell me for $3,000, I'd be happy to be proven wrong on my price estimates. :D Seriously, if I'm way off on my price expectations, please let me know.

 

If you have a film camera that's been sitting unused or under utilized, please consider dusting it off and sending it to a good home. I have a short I'd like to shoot in December with kids from the local theater club and crew from the local University. If we can pull that off, we've got plans for a feature to shoot in June.

Sadly, with that budget you're relegated to 16mm. I did see a very nice Ultra 16 package on the facebook group for $3k that had a super nice zoom lens included. If you wanna send me your contact info via PM, I can have them e-mail you.

I'm not so sure this is true Tyler. For an ultra modern camera, probably, but I just bought a 2c for under $3000 with lenses, and a friend of mine just sold his 2-perf 2C with PL mount for $1200.

 

That said, A Fries Mitchell would fit into that price range.

 

However, for a sound sync camera, you are probably right. Maybe a CP-16?

The Ultra16 package isnt available, so still looking.

 

I have one for $3000. Eclair NPR Ultra 16. Serviced by Bernie of Super16 Inc in NY last November. I need to list that thing soon. Selling at a big loss...but need the money.

Yea, those are ULTRA rare cameras tho... I've literally seen 2 in my entire life + he needs lenses to go along with it for $5k, which is hard. :(

Your price range is unrealistic. Five or so years ago maybe For 5k you can get a nice AAton XTR, but no lens. With in your price range, I would expect that only MOS 35mm cameras of old vintage will be the only choice. 2 or 3 perf fetch quite a premium these days. 4 perf cameras are much cheaper.

here is a knor with video tap optics installed, any of these cameras can have a tap installed at a later time. All these cameras are sync sound, crystal controlled, and have oct.19 mount which are relatively cheap cinema lens can be found on ebay.

Thanks to everyone who read and responded to my post. I have found an Aaton LTR54 that has been converted to Ultra16 and comes with a Zeiss 10-100. No videotap. Seller priced it at $2,500 knowing it hasnt been serviced in a few years. At this price, I can send it to Bernie and know that Ill have a camera ready to shoot. Again, thanks to everyone and Im sure I will have more questions as I go forward.

:) I have a SRII Super16 Evolution (Advanced) (5-75p/s) and unless someone offers me 5k i would not sell it. With two Zeiss HiSpeed MKIII S16 Lenses (9.5mm T1.3 & 16mm T1.3) i might sell it for 8k. i LOVE my Camera but i would sell it ONLY to get a Arri SR3 (or a 416 :D :D )
