The rates are around 4-4.5k for HR/Normal lenses- Scope/Normal. Ultra Prime lenses would obviously cost a bit more than this. Drop in at any of the production houses and get the price list.

thanx for the info very much..

Is arri 3 (3rd generation camera) little outdated? Is it manufactured in 1970s? Is there anything i am loosing in quality wise using this camera other than using Arriflex 435? My DP has opted for this camera.

Also doesn't it support HDIVR?

Afraid I can't help too much with your specific questions, but I understand the SR3 was released 1992, not the 1970's.

SR1 - 1975
SR1HS - 1979
SR2 - 1982
SR3 - 1992
SR3A - 1999
416 - 2006
416Plus HS - 2008

I'm not sure when the SR3 was actually withdrawn, but I understand they were still available new from Arri until only a couple of years ago. Certainly in the UK it's still possible to rent an SR3A package from Arrimedia, so I wouldn't worry too much about quality ...although clearly using a 435 will give a 'higher quality' image, seeing as it's a 35mm camera compared to the 16mm SR3.

No difference in quality of pictures, it's the film & lenses that count. 435 does 150 fps v Arri III's 130 fps. I often shoot on Mitchells from the 1940's & earlier on motion control rigs, nobody ever made a steadier camera. Production ran from about 1920-1965!

Ah - my apologies, I'd read "Arri 3" as "Arri SR3" rather than "Arri 35BL III" - which I believe was introduced in 1980, so near enough the 1970's.

Reference to the 435 should have given me a clue!
Whoops.

Oh well, still got it wrong then!
If I'd thought slightly harder, the fact that the 435 is the current MOS offering should have once again given me a clue.

...think I'd better shut up - might be safer! :lol:

(I think the MOS 35-III is an early 1980's camera isn't it?)

ok.. thanks for the info guys..

And one more question..

Can i use an consumer audio player for nagra? Can substitute nagra for this?

And also recording audio on a consumer minidv cam? (anyhow full film will be dubbed)

(We are tight on budget here.. hence this path..)

The 435/ Arri 3 are fairly noisy MOS camera, if you intend to record sound you should use another camera.

Hi Stephen.

I am not going to record sound in Arri3 camera.. The unit people were opting for nagra sound recorder for this job. As the audio from the nagra will not be used for final film as it is only for film editor for reference, hence i taught of recording it to a cheap mp3 player or mic from laptop.
