Hi,

I have an Arriflex BL16 with a standard "Angenieux-Zoom 12-120mm T2.5" lens and blimp. Does anyone know if this will fit onto a Arriflex SR1??

Many thanks,

The lens removed from the blimp should fit. Both cameras have the same bayonet mount.

Removing the lens from the blimp and replacing it might be a hassle.

Thanks Leo,

Do you think this is something I could do myself (I am by no means a camera technician). Also any idea where I could go about find out how?

Cheers

It's not that hard but you may end up taking screws from the blimp that don't need to come out. Where do you live?

It's been a while, but IIRC the blimp has its own bayonet mount which you unlock, then just pull the blimp off the lens. The focus, zoom and iris levers just slot over the ears on the lens- you may need to line these up. They are the only points of contact between blimp and lens- that's the point, to stop vibration being transmitted. The blimp is not clipped, screwed or fastened to the lens in any way.
Then remove the lens on its own in the usual way.
