Opinions greatly appreciated. Is this a value for money package ? Roughly how much would it cost in the UK to convert to Super16 and would it (with a blimp or similar) be quiet enough running to do sync sound in enclosed locations ? Thanks in advance for any help

It can be done, I've seen some ads for conversions of Arri BL's and Arri S's.Yet for the price I think you would do better with an Eclair NPR or ACL or Aaton LTR.These cameras convert much more easily.

The Arri 16BL is a good camera...but difficult to convert and expensive
It's also noisy without the lens blimp.


If you're looking for a decent S16 camera research this package...

A well maintained CP16R can be a good S16
You can also search for Aaton, or Eclair NPR, or Eclair ACL like Marty mentioned


Good Luck
