Hmm, tricky one. All the literature I've got for 2x Mutars specifically mentions it being for the SR, the rear baffle has "only for Arriflex 16SR" printed on it, but the rear element doesn't protrude very far, and when I carefully fitted one to a 16BL the mirror cleared.

I'll do some more digging.

OK, a 2x Mutar clears the mirror but since you can't blimp the 10-100 it was made for I guess Arri decided it was suitable for SRs only. Without the blimp support, a heavy zoom could also put pressure on the rubber shock mounts that hold the floating mechanism and lens mount in the body. Open to other theories though...

that brings up another question. when they say specifically designed for the 10-100... is there something i dont see that keeps it from working with any b-mount?

thanks for trying that. and yeah ive already used that camera without the blimp housing. considering the age of the rubber in those things.. i think using a rail system is required.
