Congratulations!

Make sure you pick up an inexpensive projector, shoot a role of Ektrachrome 100D, and see it projected since you'll probably be transfering to video to work on it. That will give you an appreciation for the vibrant colors of the stock, and plus its just very cool & retro and great party fun.

It's a nice camera, I love mine. I specially like the c-mount, you can get low budget primes or use SLR-Lenses with a adapter...

what motor is on it?

don't know if it's of any interest, but here's a list with motors for NPR http://members.aol.c...16mm/motors.htm

Thanks for all the congrats

It came with 2 Perfectone Ciblo Motors, 2 original batteries and a charger (both not holding a charge for very long and need recelling) 3 swift primes 10, 25 and 75, Angenieux Zoom 12-120. Theres also a small electrical box that I assume is a sync to a sound recorder. It runs very very quietly and i got it here in Prague for the equivalent of $1325

No, not named yet :D
