Hello,

I came across this 'Reversing Mag' Seems the spools are flipped. Can someone tell me the use of this?

http://www.ebay.co.u...S:B:SHOP:GB:101

Also, im looking to do some shots where I film with half the frame matted out and then reverse and record with a new top section.
Would I need one of these mags for that?

That’s simple. The cord running under the cover on the right side (as seen from behind camera) is placed over the front spindle in order to wind up film when running camera backwards. Actually a joke for fools to mention since all such Arriflex mags can be reversed this way.

Sorry I don't follow. Are you telling me, this Reversing Mag is a practical Joke and I can just swap over the pickup spool for take up spool on any old mag?
