16mm Arriflex, Eclair, Scoopic, etc

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Please read this thoroughly. 

Gauging interest in the sale of my entire 16mm cine collection.

Full disclosure - I am on the fence about selling these, some of them need work, some work I have done myself, other stuff is beyond my abilities for servicing. I am gauging interest and seeking offers. I would trade everything for a classic VW Bus that needs work (1970s westie or conversion preferred, not automatic, and no I won't trade it for the one thats been sitting in the field for 45 years and hasn't moved once) Moral of the story is, I'm out of college, I'm working more, I have less time to shoot on film than I would like, but I've gained an interest on working on my jeep and other vehicles more and more. I am a hobbiest, and not a professional. This is why I am open to offers after you have seen the condition of the units themselves. Many issues that I posted on the forums ultimately resulted from user error. (I have never been taught, just self taught.) Anything marked with an " * " , I would recommend servicing before use. Many come with accessories, and extras, such as batteries , chargers, etc. Please contact me about each unit, and I will tell you specifics on what I see as a user.

Please see google drive link for pictures of each unit, and the condition. 

I am accepting offers on all units, please message me to start a conversation if you are interested.
