The 435 has the little hinge clip that you place down to lock the film in place. Does the ST have I also? I was on the ST quick guide and it doesn't show or mention any little locking hinge but just that the core locks to the core holder once you place the film on it and get the key into the key slot of the core.

The Arricam mags have a different core locking device to the 435.

When the core is placed on the spindle a button in the centre of the spindle pops up, indicating that the core is locked in. But it won't pop up if the core is put on already lined up with the key. You need to put it on not lined up, so that the key is depressed, which pops up the lock button, then twist the core until the key locks into the core slot.

To remove the core you press the button in.

From the Arricam DVD:

It's a lite mag but shows the film locking mechanism that is also on the ST mags.
