Hello All,

I have experience shooting in other film gauges but I am new to 35mm. I recently purchased a Cineflex A-5 and I have a few questions. I don't have a power supply for the motor. Who would have a power supply for this camera and what are the power supply ratings for this camera? Who sells parts and/or services these cameras (if anyone)? I am also looking for a manual for this camera.

The camera came with the cheapest lenses I have ever seen with a motion picture camera (save for a few fixed focus super 8 cameras I have seen). Does this camera accept Arri mount lenses? What lenses do you recommend for this camera?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I happen to have a 200' mag for that camera. If you're interested in it, please let me know.

Most lenses from the 40s were built like that.
The mount is the same as Arri standard. Some were rebuilt with an M42 hardfront.

It's 16 or 24 v, probably later. You'll have to build your own battery pack.
