When I got this barney years ago I was told it was for an SR but maybe they were wrong.  I never tried it on an SR.  Does anyone recognize it and know what camera it fits.   If I have trouble attaching the photos I may have to post again.

 

Thanks for any help.

Gregg.

It's kind of hard to tell but it does roughly look like an SR barney.

 

I've attached some shots on my messy desk of my SR3 barney.. might help you.. KIMG0009.JPG KIMG0010.JPG KIMG0011.JPG

No you're looks much more like a custom job. Have you tried measuring it and just comparing it to SR mag measurements?

Also mine, if I recall as I haven't used it in ages; also makes room for the onboard batts hence it's elongation, and it rigid-ish whereas yours looks a bit stretchy?

 

Else may well be for an Aaton.

My barney isn't stretchy but it sort of drapes.  I used to throw it on top of an ACL and it worked really well even though not fitting.  I may have to take it to one of the rental houses and see if they recognize it.

 

Cheers,

Gregg.

It looks rather like the type of barney that Optex in the UK used to sell. It's not an Aaton barney.

Thanks for the ideas you guys.  I think John might be right.  It' looks proportioned for a magazine on top.   There is a window on the right hand side for looking at the mag footage and an access port that I think is to reach the inching knob.
