Hello everyone!

so i am new on this forum and i have a question!

i just by a Arriflex 2c and i have a small question about the "governor motor" (variable speed motor).
actually i dont find any documentation about it and i dont understand Has which speed correspond figures(number) write on the motor itself! and where must be allignment of the number from the camera?

i know that he start at 12fps and finish at 48fps thats it, but i dont know what number correspond to 24 and if there is a 25fps mode!

You can get the Arriflex owner's manual from both their website and the library. The best library will be the Library of Congress in Washington DC. It should be online in a PDF format.

With a variable speed motor you go off the tachometer at the back of the camera. Adjust the rheostat at the base of the motor until the tacho reads the fps speed you want. The numbers on the motor are for reference only.

A 'governor-controlled' motor is a different thing - that would be a constant speed motor which self-regulates it's speed to 24 or 25 fps only.
