My first arri 16sr
Posted 11 June 2007 - 10:10 AM
Zeiss 10-100mm T3 Zoom Lens
Two Arri 400ft mags
Dual battery charger
Miller tripod, fluid head w/ quick release plate
Halliburton Zero Case
The camera has not been in use for 7 years. I would like to have it converted to super 16 in the near future.
Is this a good deal? How much would an upgrade to super 16mm potentially cost?

As far as the Super 16 conversions go, my favorite conversion is the one done by Axel Broda. Then there are the conversions done by P+S Technic in Germany and also Jorge down at CinemaTechnic in Florida does Super 16 conversions on the Arriflex 16SR. You will need to call around to find out prices, they vary pretty much and remember, you get what you pay for.
The Arriflex 16SR is a really good workhorse camera. I used to own one and am a big fan. Get a good one, keep it regularly serviced, and it will last a lifetime.

It would be interesting to know the serial number of that camera. To see if it has the French motor and electronics of the German motor and electronics.
