Where can one find 3-perf movement of the 2c? And how much can one expect to pay?

I don't think there are 3perf movements for the 2C. As far as I know it can't change it to Super35 either.

I second the above.

I once enquired about a 3 perf IIC at Panavision, and they said that they don't offer it, and they don't think it is even possible/ available. Could be wrong though, but I haven?t heard otherwise

Hi,

P+S Technik, can do Super 35 and 3 perf for a 2c

We also do 2/3 perf conversions for all cameras including 2C, and probably a little cheaper than P+S.

The super 35 conversion for 2C is a little tricky but also available.

Hello Bruce,

Everyboby seems to say that the Super 35 modification for the 2C is complicated. I was wondering something about the viewfinder. Are the groundglass and the mirror wide enough to handle the modification so that the entire S35 picture could be seen trhu the VF ? Same question for the 2B...

Thanks.

---The IIC groundglass isn't wide enough for S35.

So the ground glass would have to be replaced, the finder optics modified and recentered to cover the new ground glass.

A major modification/replacement.

sounds very expensive, particularly for a MOS camera.

Hi,

Normally with a 2c (or Arri 3) its not worth recentering the lens as some Zeiss lenses will hit the mirror. Most primes would still cover the S35 in any case.

---So you won't have to recenter the viewfinder optics for the new larger ground glass.

But will the veiw finder optics have to be modified to cover the larger Ground glass?

Leo,

Yes, but I understand that is fairly simple.
