I've ever used their gear and I know many people don't care, or even take the time to ridicule someone who gives a damn and regardless of the legendary user comfort of it I do love just the aesthetics of Aaton equipment.

 

Not plastic (sony), not hummer-esque (red).

 

The Cantar, like a modern Nagra SNST - lovely things.

 

Other cameras of note: - Bolex, some Arri and Russian. Too many stills cam to mention

 

But other modern stuff...

 

pfff

Weren't they going to market something like a 6k or 8k camera back in 2009?

I believe those were some of the original specs for the Penelope digital.

That was it.  Does anybody outside of France shoot with it?

Well I know the films ones are here in the US. The Fighter, I believe was 2-perf off of them. As for the digital version, Abel Cine in NY may have gotten one-- I'm not sure. It was previously discussed on the forums, I think. It had a very interesting shutter system.

There's a link in the Aaton section, but here's a short film shot on the camera.

I believe there are only a few cameras around.
