Anybody here having experience making an Arriflex 35 III into a hand cranked camera?

What to do and what not to do, pictures? I´m grateful for any information.

Thank you

Hi Peter,
never heard of one being used that way. Why not use an Arri II or something even older? Should be easy to get these days...
Regards, Dave

Well, yes. The IIc is the usual way to go. But the viewing system on the IIc is not good and I got a 35III for a good price including Jurgen videotap, wide angel viewfinder and extender. Right now it´s stuck in customs. But it will hopefully arrive tomorrow and I thought I´d collect some information as I´m hoping too shoot with it this saturday.

There is an old thread here, but I was hoping to get some more technical information on the actual conversion of the camera.

Ok, seems like the OP also had problems with his use of the III. But good luck anyways!

Nah, I wouldn´t call it problems. Love the idea with the drill.
