Love this forum; plenty of knowledgeable people.
I have a couple questions.
A. Camera A recently broke down after working for a few months.
Arri SR2 w/ Cinematography Electronics module
There's a loud high pitch noise when I run the camera at any frame rate. Sometimes it goes away. Now it stays on.
Based on the CE website, the crystal sync seems to be off. Anything I can do electronically/quickly before I have to send it out to CE for repair? If it's something loose, etc...
I'd love to get this one up and running. I modified the gate for ultra 16mm and it worked really well when it didn't have that noise.
B. I have a backup camera
Arri SR2 from Eastern Europe. Supposedly super 16mm
I never actually used it yet because the PL mount is so weird. When I keep the nut in, the locking mechanism is really tough.
When I take the nut off, the lens sits really loose.
Pictures attached. This is not a PV mount right?
I also attached a picture of the gate. Are you guys able to identify if it's a super 16mm gate?
If all else fails, I might just take off the PL mount from camera A and replace the one in camera B.
