This just popped up on eBay. Never seen an Aaton LTR with such a low serial number. Heck it doesn't even have the "C" prefix like most LTR cameras, it has a "B".

Looks to be in pretty beat up shape, and the auction house that's selling it obviously doesn't understand the motion picture camera market, as they have it listed at $9999.00.

If you want to view the listing and see the rest of the pics, you can find it here:

Aaton LTR 16mm Film Camera

I don't exactly know what "B" or "C" means in the AATON numbering.
That camera has the standard LTR viewfinder, don't know if it was updated or if it's from factory. By the way, the price can be divided by ten...
I believe that first LTR had a different viewfinder.

Have a look to that one, it's serial number is C2x and as you can see the viewfinder is different. I think that older viewfinders were less orientable.

Bummer,

All the pictures from that auction disappeared. The serial number was B124. It did have the newer looking viewfinder. But the body was quite different, especially where the battery plugs in.

Best,

PS: And now the pictures are back:
