I have an opportunity to purchase one these cameras, and I am doing some research to see if it would be worth the investment. I have a few questions:
1. Are they as reliable as their Arriflex Counterparts?
2. Are they serviceable?
3. Is anything interchangeable with the Arriflex?
4. Does anyone know where I can find more information on these cameras?

The 16S is a virtually immortal piece of engineering. The only one I ever used ran like a dream out of the box where it had lain unused for 10 or 15 years.
Can't help with the question, though. I know it's a bit like the chap who asked for directions only to be told 'well I wouldn't start from here'. Sorry.

I do not have enough cash on hand to take advantage of the countless deals all over. Focus, focus, focus! By the way, Robert, the native UK based UltraPan8 projector is about to be shipped to Jean-Louis for a slight gate mod.
Do you and your brother have nay projector engineering experience? I was wondering if it is plausible to retrofit the projector with an Osram HTI lamp + ballast, e.g.
Apparently the projector has a significant internal fan.
