Hey guys, my Arriflex is one of the older 16S.  It has a turret for three lenses.  All of the mounts are the same.  Can anyone tell me what kind of mounts those are?  Are they PL, Arriflex Standard, or what?  I know I have to use special lenses on it, but I don't know what that mount is called.

Thanks.

It's either Arri Standard, or Bayonet.  Depends on the serial/date of manufacture. 

 

If it looks like it has locking tabs inside the mount, its bayonet. 

If it looks rather smooth, it's standard as the lens has to rotate in the mount.

Well, it looks smooth until you get inside to the back of the lens mount.  Each lens hole as two levers on each side you pinch in to release two tabs inside the mount, at the back.

Mark,  a photo would have made it easier.  There's a picture of an Arri II turret showing the standard mount ports on Dom's blog.  Go down about 10 pages.

From what you said I think your ports are all standard mount. 

Some standard mount lenses do focus by rotating in the port.  Add vaseline.  Most of the Schneider ones I used focused internally with a fixed mount clamped in the port.

You have to host a jpeg somewhere and then provide a link using the [img] function around the URL.
