I checked out a 2c camera package quickly yesterday - was wondering if the kind folks here could give me their impressions of the following:
Arri 35 IIc - 4-perf Super35 gate and hardfront PL-mount (re-centred) - (however, viewfinder has not been extended or centred)
Cinematography Electronics 2C CRYSTAL MOTOR BASE (1-80 fps) - info here
Original motors, variable speed wild and goverened 24fps versions (both unused for some time)
3 x 400' mags (at least one is reversable)
4 x 200' mags
Video split (color) and monitor - no details on brand etc...
Arri 4x4 matte box with a bunch of filters + 3x3 matte box, no details on that yet...
14mm Canon f2.8
18mm Zeiss Super Speed f1.4
25mm Cooke f2
35mm Schneider f2
50mm Zeiss Sonar f1.5
50mm Cooke f2
75mm Cooke f2
85mm Zeiss Super Speed f1.4
400mm Leitz Telyt f5
Miller tripod - no details but its a fluid head and well large enough to hold this camera (+ Hi Hat)
Batteries, charger, shoulder brace, road cases, bits'n'bobs etc...
The Cinematography Electronics motor is mint - the rest of the package is showing the normal wear and wear for an older camera, of the lens elements I got a chance to inspect they were all optically perfect or at least 9 out of 10 - It started out in the New Zealand Natural History Film Unit and then was sold to the current owner for use on features (it spent sometime in an underwater housing) and 2nd unit shooting of Hercules and Xena. A bit noisier than I was expecting, especially the mags - but I've been shooting 16mm, so I dont know what to expect. But a MOS camera is ok for what I want to shoot...
>>>What should I be looking at/for ? What sort of price would this go for ?
>>>Are the Lenses any good ?
any help appreciated !
ps. excuse the double post - this is an offshoot of another thread that seemed to have died down - I need some advice soon though, so here it is again in its own thread...
