When Arri switched from manufacturing the standard SR3 to the SR3 Advanced, were any changes or improvements made to the magazines, or are SR3 and SR3 Advanced-era mags essentially identical?  Also, if the mags that were sold with the SR3 Advanced cameras did have improvements or changes, is there any way to identify a mag manufactured for sale with an SR3 vs. a mag manufactured for sale with an SR3 Advanced?

There was no change to the mags with the release of the SR3 Advanced, just the introduction of an 800ft magazine option. Arri were pretty good at keeping standards through model evolutions - SR1 or 2 mags will work with SR3s, just no time code (which no-one used anyway), and older mags not modified for S16 might potentially scratch the expanded image area . It's not recommended to use High Speed mags on standard cameras (or vice versa) however.

 

Some SR3 mags have time code modules fitted and are labelled as such, others may not, but there's no other difference.
