Some of you may remember that almost a year ago I was moving to South America and sold of a bunch of my film equipment on here. I had an Arriflex SR16 with sound blimp for sale but the buyer backed out at the last minute and I had to put the camera in Storage before I left.
Now I'm back in the states for 3 months and have it for sale again but now I'm thinking maybe I should keep it but here is the problem I'm having...
This one is a bayonet mount camera and I have been unable to buy lenses for it. One reason being that they aren't that easy to find.
Now that I live a more carefree life, I want to start doing more short documentaries and films and I'm thinking maybe I can still use this camera if I convert it to super16 and maybe convert the lens mount to one where I can buy more readily available lenses.
I like that this one works perfectly, has some accessories and I have the special sound blimp to go with it that reduces the camera noise to zero.
Or should I trade it for a super16 camera with a lens mount with more readily available lenses?
