I'm prepping to shoot my thesis film in May, 2008 and am talking to a couple of rental houses in New York regarding renting a 35mm package.
The two cameras that I'm looking at renting are either the Aaton 35-III or the Moviecam Compact MKII.
My needs for the shoot are:
- Camera must be quiet enough to not be picked up by the microphone even when the camera is close to the mic.
- Camera must be able to shoot 3-perf super 35mm without jamming or other issues.
- Camera must be light, compact, and easy to fly on a steadicam rig.
Which camera would you say is better and what pros and cons are there for each camera?
I haven't used either of these cameras before, so it would be really helpful if you'd fill me in on any weaknesses or glitches that these cameras have.
Thanks a lot for your help!
