its a first surface mirror isnt it? dont want to touch it? ive rebuit some cameras in my day and wiped these things right off during the early end of the learning curve. have no desire to do so with an arri. cant find info in the manual.

I don't think it'll wipe off, but it's pretty easy to scratch. Guess you're talking about your 16BL?

Unless it's really dirty I'd leave it alone. And if it's really dirty the camera probably needs a service, so let a tech clean it when the camera's apart.

no its not very dirty right now. however, i shoot in the field predominantly and things get dirty. ive always done my own bolex service. i had to do a pretty good cleaning on this bl when i got it. but there are some things i wont touch yet. that mirror being one of them.
