The Aaton X0plus was the low end of Aaton's camera in the early ninties (vs the XTRplus). It would look like any other of the XTR-class cameras. It would be from 1992-1994 and range from serial 1785 to 1900. It uses the same magnetic magazine drive as an XTR, comes in Super 16 and has the capacity for screw-in 15mm rods in the front housing. It's top speed should be 60 fps. It was designed to be upgradable to be an XTRplus...

Think of an XO as an XTRplus with the electronics module removed. That's actually what it looks like--as if someone pulled off the LCD display. Hey Nathan, can someone still upgrade such a beast?

Good Question. I'm sure it can be done... Parts are still manufactured/avaliable for the XTRplus so it should be pretty straight forward to tack on the side display and install a new board in the base. As to the cost, I'm not sure, I'd have to scope out the costs of the electronics, but I doubt labor would be very high.
