Eclair NPR VS Arri S
Posted 11 July 2007 - 06:22 AM
I plan to shoot a MOS film. Which camera should get between these two? I know the NPR can do sync sound but the Arri S can't. I used the Arri S before and liked it. But in terms of image-quality, ease of use and weight, which one would better. Thanks.

Assuming both cameras are operating correctly, the lenses are going make the main difference in image quality.

The Arriflex 16S is light, extremely durable, and very comfortable to hand hold. And if you get an S/B model, you can use the Zeiss Super Speed Mk1 prime lenses. My personal favorites are the Cooke Kinetal lenses for the 16S, which I find a bit more "snappy" than the Zeiss glass.
Hope that helps,
