Does anyone know where I might be able to find the manual for this camera?  Might it be available online somewhere?

 

Also, I don't know much about the ARRI 35mm cameras.  Is the 2C a 4-perf camera? (I'm guessing yes, due to its age.)

 

Thanks for any help.

 Contact me via PM and  I will send you the PDF.

 

ALL ARRI 35mm cameras have been factory 4 -perf until 3-PERF became popular in the 1990's

for television productions.

Hi James.  Thanks for the response.  I tried to PM you but it says you can't receive any more messages right now.  Full inbox, perhaps?...

Bill,
there are online IIC manuals available in several places. Try:

http://www.kevinzani...5IIC_manual.pdf
or
http://www.kinokamer...5IIC_manual.pdf

Most IICs will be 4-perf, a very few modified to 3-perf, and occasionally you'll find a Techniscope 2-perf model. Most will not be S35 capable either.

PS I would disregard the manual when it suggests trimming the first 20 perfs off a leader for loading the mags, not necessary IMHO

Out of curiosity, is the reason most aren't capable of super 35 because of the re-centering of the lens mount (turret or PL) or a gate issue?

I think the biggest issue was if you re-centred the mount certain wide angle lenses would hit the mirror, since the mirror is on the side where you need to shift the optical axis over to. Other things like the viewfinder optics not normally covering Super and the claw recess in the gate being too close to the frame edge were also problematic.
