Perfect, thank you Dom. I think Arri must have sent us Arricam oil rather than chronosynth 1/8 then because Jorge mentioned that his old bottle of oil was much more viscous and dark in color than what they sent him. Will check in with him. Thanks again!

i have two moviecam compact mk 1 cameras, one has a cinema electornics module replacing the OEM one. The other is original, but is powered via four pin. The cinema electronics is three pin. I am not sure how much voltage each requires or the proper wiring?

Moviecams are 24V cameras, at least the SL and Compact MkII are, I would assume the Mk1 is the same.

We talked about power socket wiring in this thread:
http://www.cinematog...showtopic=65058

The original Moviecam wiring was pin 1 ground and pins 2 and 4 +24V, but some rental houses altered the wiring to avoid mix ups with the 12V standard power plug which was a 4 pin XLR wired to pins 1 and 4. You may need to remove the side cover to check the wiring.

The 24V (non-Panavision) standard was a 3 pin XLR wired pin 1 ground and pin 3 +24V, which is how I would assume the CE module is wired.
