Has anyone had any issues with this camera in terms of scratching? Hair? "I've heard things." but no actual reports. My experience with a 4 perf version was fine on the last feature I used it on.

I'm approaching a shoot date on a feature, we will be on location, in Santa Fe and would like to use the 35-III as our B cam...how about good old fashioned scratch tests on location?

Lastly, is the Penelope yet available?

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

Ben,

The 3P Aaton 35-III body is fine and is in line with your experience with the 4P body. It is, a bit quieter, but otherwise those 'things' you've heard are unfounded.

Lucas Loureiro, a forum member here, is the only owner (that I know of) in the states of a 3P 35-III body. Although someone in our LA office might know of someone on that coast. He also has a nice set of Zeiss Standards and reasonable day rates.

The Penelope, while pretty far along in development, won't be ready for a while yet, possibly first quarter of next year.
