Arriflex 435 Xtreme 3perf conversion kit?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is a 3 perf conversion kit for the Arriflex 435 Xtreme? I can find info on conversion kits for the 235 and the Arricams but not the 435. If they do exist, any recommendations for where to find one would be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks!

a 435 3 perf movement should pop in if Im not mistaken. Contact Adnree at AM camera, he does movement conversions still (and has done several 2 perf 435 cameras while at Clairmont) - AMcamera.com

Just dropped Andree a line. Thank you for the info, Robin!

He can convert the camera as it's a cam based movement, but it's going to be expensive. Sadly it's not just the movement and the gate, but also some drive pulleys.

I have been offered an Arriflex 435 Advanced 3perf but really was hoping to find an Xtreme. There are 4perf Xtremes available hence the idea to do a conversion. If this is too costly, I'll abandon that idea.

For anyone who is interested, Andree from AM Cameras just replied:

 

There isn't much information out there when it comes to the 435. Unlike the 235 and Arricams, the installation of a 3 perf kit into a 435 is quite difficult and it requires special tools and a highly experienced technician.
