Hi-

Isn't it just a PL mount? (52mm) or did they make those beasts with BNCR mounts?

Hi,

from what I know (and what Samuelson says) the Super America was built with options of Arri SB, Arri PL and BNCR mounts. So the FFD should be:

SB 52.00 mm
PL 52.00 mm
BNCR 61.468 mm

Cheers, Dave

Hi,

Cameras are usually set slightly short so the focus falls into the film. It's closer to 51.98 from memory but you should check with the rental house that you are getting the camera from.

Hi Dave,

BNCR flange focale depth is 2.420 inches. Which as you say equals 61.468mm.
