Hi guys,
I have a simple question: Do you know where I can find caps for the arri 16s turret? Does it's still available from arri? or just the size for an adaptable one.

thanks!

They occasionally come up on ebay. That's where I got mine. When I bought my camera, the ports were covered with electrical tape.

It's really just a rubber plug.

But off hand, the 16S is getting to be an orphaned item. Arri might have them. No harm in asking them.

I'm sure you have a company in China whip up 10,000 for about $100. They'd even illegally put the Arri logo on it if you want...probably legal as long as you don't sell them. B)

I contacted directly arri in Munich, very fast reply, and they have the item in stock (ref n°K5.33656.0)
I have to order it through an arri dealer. The only question is the price of the piece!

Let us know what they quote for a price. I'm curious. Knowing Arri, it's probably not cheap. I'm wondering if it's cheaper than getting one 3d printed.
