Why NOT Aaton ?

i was wondering, why is so little feature work being shoot on the aaton 35mm camera ? its only ever panavison and arri. is it because the camera cant keep up to the technical standards or what ? i only ever used an aaton xtr prod. and i really loved the camera.
so why is it that you hear so little about the aaton 35 ?

I just shot my thesis film with it, and it was fine, but had another camera been avaliable to me I would have used it. (We now have a MovieCam Compact and ARRI BL4s)
The new Aaton 35 that will be displayed (in prototype) at NAB this year will likely change all of this though... I'm especially excited about the 2-perf option.

That said, I'm equally excited about the new Penelope camera - especially in 2-perf. Maybe I can finally be able to swing all these 16mm jobs into 2-perf instead sometime in the future...

I think you'll be able too. I'm gearing up to shoot some 2-perf tests. I shot some stuff in TimeSquare the other night on a converted Kinor on a set of LOMOs. We'll see how it turns out.

Trainspotting & Swingers were shot all on the Aaton 35.
