Hi,

I'm shooting a short film in March next year on S16 and am currently trying to work through various options. The lenses are sorted for the most part, we're going with Hawk V-Lite16's. However, my university has Arri SR2s, which don't have anamorphic ('desqueezer') viewfinders, so I'm looking in to either hiring a different camera or getting hold of an anamorphic, 'desqueezed', viewfinder (which I assume is cheaper). We also have an Aaton LTR, S16 gate.

I was wondering if it is possible to get an anamorphic 'desqueezed' viewfinder for the Aaton LTR. Alternatively, does anyone know of a rental house in the UK that stocks an Arri SR2 or SR3 which has already been modified to have one of these viewfinders? I hear the process involves stripping a 435?

The rental of a 416 may prove to be the best option but I thought I'd try asking here to see if you could help me find a cheaper solution ;)

Thanks,

Scott

Is there a tap?

You could always send the tap to a SMALL HD monitor if there was. THose monitors are a cheep rental and they will stretch Anamorphic lenses.

I know this is a work-a-round and not really the answer you sere looking for but I thought I'd throw it out
