I have been offered the loan of an ArriBL that has not been used for a long time. When we went to open the box we found the lugs that support the lens within the Blimp were missing.

Where can I find a set of these? I have been searching the web for repair people to no avail.

I'm based in the UK.

I Suppose the next problem may be the batteries - do they tire if they've not been used? and the charger's been lost.

cheers

Hi,

I recently bough a BL and it seemed as if it hadn't been used in a while. The battery did not work so I researched and found a number of possibilites finally buying this one:

It works great, runs all day. As far as the lugs, I'm not quite sure.

Good luck

Thanks, If it'll work in the UK it's perfect.

I'm determined to get this camera running again. It looked really sad lying a bit dead, and the operator who had left it sitting idle in a box for years looked a bit shame faced. So I've got to cheer him up (and get the camera to use for myself). I managed to call Arri in the UK and they might be able to find some of those rubber screw thingys.

thanks again.
