I would like to get a Lens Aperture Control Ring which was fitted to new Arriflex SR cameras supplied with the Arriflex bayonet mount.

 

The ring was often removed from cameras because it could get in the way of larger zoom lenses, and/or because it was incompatible with the PL mount when cameras originally supplied with bayonet mounts were retro-fitted with PL mounts.

 

The ring originally fitted to the camera I have has been removed at sometime, and I would like to fit a replacement.

 

I am wondering if anybody has a surplus one they would be willing to sell. I attach a picture of the what it is I am looking for.

 

Please contact me if you can help.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

Check with Arri in NY. I sent my SR1 there for maintenance a few weeks ago and it magically came back with one attached (it had been missing).

Thanks very much for your response Will.

 

Our colleague member Dom Jaeger (Australia) has very kindly offered to let me have one of these rings, and I am now just waiting for it arrive. Needless to say, I most grateful to Dom and very pleased to be able to acknowledge his generosity and help.
