Does any one have a step-by-step diagram for loading the BL2 mag?

Thanks

There are several books available that give you loading diagrams for many of the 35 and 16 cameras used today. If you don?t know how to load the mag there are probably several other things you don?t know about working with the camera. Do yourself a favor and buy a comprehensive camera technical book.

The Professional Cameraman?s Handbook by Sylvia and Verne Carlson was a good book on technical camera information.

The loading of the 35BL mags were very similar to the later 535 mags. Online in the archives of cinematography.net is a .pdf of the Arri535 manual. That should be enough to help you figure it out. If not, ask what doesn't make sense to you and I'll try to explain it in detail.
