Hello,

I am currently considering buying an Arri BL4 body without magazines. I have seen an earlier post on here that says Arri bl3 magazines are compatible but other sources online contradict that. Does anyone know for sure if I can use bl3 mags on it or if its bl4 mags only? It's 4 perf by the way.

It also comes with a ground glass but no eyepiece. Am I right in thinking that if I don't need an extension eyepiece, I only need to get an eyecup and it would be ready to go?

Thanks in advance!

BL-3 mags are compatible with a BL-4 or 4s, it's BL-1 and 2 mags that aren't unless they've been modified.

You will need an eyepiece, whether you use an an extension finder or not. I'd recommend getting a camera that is complete, if it's missing the eyepiece who knows what else is missing.
