Hi,

Anyone have any photos that they can post showing the mechanism side of a modern 35mm or 16mm camera? By mechanism side I refer to the side driving the movement and shutter.

I and I'm sure others, would love to see what is inside an engineering masterpiece like an Aaton, Arri 435, 235 or the 16mm 416. They must surely look very different to the old cameras as they have a seperate mirror motor.

I have attached a photo of a very old (not at all modern) Arri 1 35mm camera to get things started. In this example the magazine drive gear is the large brown gear at the top. The motor drive gear is at the bottom of the picture. The mirror is the angled item on the right hand side. The black cylinder on the left hand side is the tachometer.

Henry.
