hello there.

i was wondering about this whole aaton ltr super 16 magazines issue.

so i have two magazines and they both have the take up part facing left so the film bends a bit, i heard that after t grain came out on 16mm stock aaton changed their mags by turning the take up part. so the film comes out with out bending too much, they told me that my one causes bruising on the film (t grain stock) and that i need the new mags.

we've shot 4x 400 ft rolls to test all aspects of the camera, and so far no bruising, should i still look into getting the "super 16" mags???

thanks in advance...

It was an issue on older film stocks, not so much anymore. But the rollers and channels have to be cut for Super-16.
