What type of cells do the batteries have?

 

You may need to get them recelled, this is a lot cheaper than buying news batteries.However you can't do this with Li-Ion batteries.

 

You may get away with a recovery charge; See here for more under chargers.https://www.paguk.com/support

Older ballasts may not have been "flicker free".

I remember there being a substantial difference between BECTU rates and what the BBC (or anyone else) actually paid. Has that changed?

 

The rates I mentioned are for high end productions. BECTU does have rates for different budget levels for drama and TV drama, however, I suspect the actual rates on a BBC drama may vary depending on the budgets and the above the line costs, they tend to be a lot tighter on the crew rates.

The 2017 BECTU recommended rate for a camera operator for a 55 hour week is £3300 on a £30m+ feature, The DP rate is individually negotiated, it depends who you are..

The Arri 35 2c was modified by rental house etc so that it had a hard front, rather than the turret with the Arri Bayonet mount. The hard front mount options include PV, PL and BNCR mounts, I recall seeing Nikon mounts as an option being advertised in AC, You could also get adapters to fit Nikon lenses onto cine camera mounts, I had one for my Aaton..
