Hi Folks,

I have a very nice Ariri16SB, serial number 17493, that works well otherwise, except the APEC meter. I talked to Arri USA, Axel Broda and a couple of other techs about getting it working. The general opinion is that it's too old, the parts and calibration equipment are not available anymore.
It's a long shot, but does anyone know a tech who can fix it ?
I don't really need it for the shoots I do, but it would be nice to have. I'm in southern California. Thanks, John

John,

Talk to ARRI USA in New York if you haven't already. ARRI USA in Burbank no longer services Arriflex 16S cameras, but the New York office does, if the serial number is above 15,000. Axel and I still service all the Arriflex 16S cameras, but neither of us have the APEC test equipment, as it is VERY expensive and needs to be regularly calibrated. I would think ARRI in New York would be your best bet.
