Hi all,

For my first message, and to introduce myself quickly, I began to use 16mm film one year ago, with a good old bolex h16. Now I'm about to buy an Arri 16st camera, with the variable speed motor, but without cable and power. I read with a lot of interest the various topics concerning the batteries/cable for the arriflex camera, very useful.

My question is that filmcamerakit.com is mentionned to have spare parts (like power cable) for the camera. But the website is off. Does someone knows if it's still open, or got a contact of them? thanks!

Good day,

may I ask why you prefer a 16ST over an SRII or SR III?
(These cameras come away in perfect shape on eBay these days for an apple and a penny..)
Just very curious.
Cheers

merci Jean Louis pour l'adresse!

Phil, I prefer the smaller 16st instead of bigger SR models. I'm primarily a photographer, not a full-time filmmaker

'filmcamerakit.com' seems to have closed down !
Their website's been down for a couple of weeks now.
