I was browsing the Marketplace and noticed a thread regarding an Arri SR3. As I'm also looking to purchase an Arri or Aaton 16mm camera at some point, I'm trying to pick up on the nuances of each camera and variation, so I have a few questions about the photo posted in the sixth message of this Marketplace thread.
The member who posted the photo describes this SR3 as an HS Advanced model, however a couple of things look a little off. First, this SR3 has a built-in light meter. Wasn't the light meter ditched on the Advanced model (in favor of a brighter viewfinder)? Along the same lines, the "Advanced" printed on the light meter seems a little odd, almost as if it was non-factory.
Also, for HS versions of the SR3, wasn't "HS" printed on both the camera body and the mags?
Finally, what's the deal with the yellow run button? I thought all SR3s had a green run button.
Thanks to anyone who can help. I'm just curious if my observations are correct.
