A producer I know is trying to identify the camera in this link: http://www.bengals.c...d9-837353d2b57d

I haven't had the joy of using this one before, can anyone recognize it?

Thanks!

I recognise the sony viewfinder tube but from that angle it could be anything.

My thoughts exactly, but I know there are some very keen eyes on here so figured I'd ask. Thanks Jake.

To me it looks like a sony color VF on an arri high speed camera. Funny combo, though.

Ikonoscop A-cam 16? Looks kind of like it. Don't they still shoot in 16, too?

I think it's a sony HD camera of sorts. The more I looked at the picture, I think it's the angle throwing you. I think it looks rounded at the back due to a lighter colored battery or lav pack.

The viewfinder looks like it is attached onto a small lcd screen, and the back of the body seems to take an upward slant, kinda looks like an EX-3 on some sort of plate - or maybe one of their pmw/pdw cameras?

I'm probably totally wrong. :lol:

One more stab at it...

It has an eng lens, sony vf and an israeli arm on top. The article mentions tape, so my final answer is an F900R.
