HI There! I just got an Arriflex 16 SR1 (somewhat by accident) and I have a few questions.
The seller had "1 - Video Assist Optics" listed as one of the items that comes with the camera. I thought I knew what this meant. I thought it was a viewfinder piece that would allow you to hook up a camera to it. However when the camera arrived today, what it has looks like the standard Arriflex viewfinder (like the one in the manual). The seller sells a lot of these things and all of his listings say "1 - Video Assist Optics". This being my first time owning one, do I need to get something else other than just a small video camera to have some video assist action going on?
The seller is away until the 8th and I didn't ask before because I thought I understood what was what.
Here it is the camera I have.
Next question, I bought this SR1 blimp today. Anyone ever seen/used one of these?
I couldn't find anything about it on the net. Just wanted to hear about any experiences with it.
