I bought an Arri ST off of Ebay. It's register number is 12400. It came with 6 lenses as well. Five are Cooke lenses and one is a Zeiss. I want to shoot the start of my first feature using it. I have a friend who is going to DP it, but I want to learn to shoot on film as I've always been a bit of closet-DP.
Now the Question:
I spoke to Arri UK and they said they would service it and the lenses, or do tests on it. But I got lost in the stuff the engineer was saying to me, he was very nice about it, but my lack of experience showed. Can anyone tell me what to ask to have done to it?
Also, as a sub note, does it do crystal sync? I have a motor with it and the seller said it did 25fps, but I didn't know if that meant it was crystal sync. I know Tobin motor's are crystal sync, but I didn't want to lay out for one until I'd asked you lot.
It might seem stupid just going out and buying a camera, but I figured it was the only way I'd learn, even renting an Arri SR3 is well out of my league.
Thanks for any help advice as well.
I have found www.arri16s.com and are reading as much info as possible off of that.
