I was wondering if somebody could run a serial number for me to see how old, and which version i have, serial is 13641, i believe it to be a gs model, but it doesn't have a bayonet mount.

Your best bet is to contact ARRI directly.  They are very accommodating.

My bad, serious mind fart.  I was confusing the G/S model with the model that came out with the APEC door.  

 

The G/S has the sound sync module on the back.  It's a square shaped box on the back side of the camera.  If you could post a pic of the back side of the camera, that would help.

 

Also, you can read more about the camera, in particular the G/S part, in the camera manual posted here:

Sorry Brendan, screw up on my part.  This is the camera with the Apec door.  Not necessarily a G/S.  As pictured below:

See my modified post above for more info on the G/S.

ohh okay mine is not like that. mine has an arri 60hz pilot tone generator sticking on the side, has a spot on the bottom by the tri pod mount for a lamp, and had a clear plastic dome on the top by the hand grip. Must have misread the description on another post. and my pic didnt post for some reason

You're right Brendan, I was wrong.  I confused the G/S with the APEC door version.  Sorry.

 

If your camera is as you described, it sounds like it is a G/S model.  The user manual I linked to above has info about the G/S model and how it is used.

 

Best,

-Tim
