Hey everyone.  I'm looking to upgrade to a sync-sound camera sometime soon and was just wondering exactly what the regular 16mm Arriflex SRII has over the SR.

 

Thanks for any help.

I can tell you that as recently as 1 year ago ARRI NY worked on an Arri SR1 for me and brought the board back to life. There's one guy still there that can fix anything but they may not advertise it...

 

That CinemaTechnic article pretty much sums up everything about the SRs.

 

I would add that finding a Super 16 SR2 or SR3 might make sense since they are all so cheap these days. However that makes the regular 16 SR1's and SR2's crazy cheap too.

Here’s a bargain on an SR3 being sold by a forum member, I believe.
