Hey there, 

 

about to buy a late Aaton LTR 7. The camera has been converted to S16, but the mags haven't. 

 

Instead of having them expensively converted to S16 as well, could I use the camera with an XTR Prod 400' DX S16 magazine? I could get that for $200, that's why I'm asking about the mag compatibility of the LTR. 

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

The XTR mags have magnetic drive, the LTR has a mechanical coupling so they are not compatible.

I use non converted mags all of the time with no problems at all.
