I was once told by Bruce McNaughton at ArandaFilm, that the Konvas cameras are very difficult to convert to 2-perf. He said something about it being more expensive than it is really worth.

  Several  cameras that make good 2-perf conversions are the ARRI BL3 or 4, ARRI 2C, ARRI 35-3, KINOR 35mm, EYEMO 35mm , MITCHELL 35R and the Moviecam Compact.

Bruce McNaughton would have been the guy to do it but I don't believe he is anymore.

Hi all, about the 2-perf movement, I was pretty sure the 353B could do it, but I haven't find documentation about anything tighter than 3-perf. Any inputs on the 535B ?

 

Best,

 

Toto
