Thanks, man, that's awesome! Plenty of info!
Thing is. I JUST bought1/won 1 bid on eBay 2 Matte Boxes, ORIGINAL Standard MATTE BOXES for Arri16s (Total of $170 on both, but considering it's becoming quite HARD to find stuff for Arri 16s... I rather keep two one for each body and maybe sell later)
OK, lets go by parts then...
Do you have the Kinoptic metal shade for your 5.7? This is the only shade you can use, unless you make your own. No filters can be put in it.
Kinoptic 5.7 or 9.8 Lenshade... (scanner art, some distortion)
No, I don't have...
But just to make sure I got straight. and find out what is missing to use them with my lens... WHAT items (IF ANY) of the above pictures you posted, I'd need in order to ADAPT these lens:
2 Zeiss 10mm and 16mm Cinegon Arri STD Lens
1 Kinoptik 5.7 >>> This I got what you said, it's PROBLEM... WHAT could I use in an original
As for your 8 to 12 volt conversion on the mag torque motor, I had my motors converted by Clive Tobin. I don't think he is doing this any more, but maybe he will tell you what resistors you need and how to wire them in. I do know it's not just one resistor to drop the voltage from 12 volts to 8.
I'd do that if I have the money now. But its an expensive "toy" the Arri 16s (although worth every penny, isn't it?)
I'm keen to make two of them work. But I'm sure I saw somewhere here, will look around. someone posted the pics and names of the pieces, and the guidelines on how to make this.
Anyway, one of my Arri 16s is not working. It's perfect,, PRISTINE, but the old owner said he plugged, it run for a while and stopped...
SO... It will probably have to go to a specialist. When I have the money, I can pay to make the changes.
But I have one working. And keen to make the mags work.
Any tips on the matte box/lens issue would help.
