Hey friends...

I've been shooting DV for years...and I'm ready to invest in a decent 16mm package and get this down pat. I know filming basics, and have a decent budget. Let's say $5-10K. Ideally I'd like to buy new so I'm not inheriting someone elses problem... I know enough to know that features like crystal sync, easability of loading, and reputation will matter... I shoot action sports, motorsports, and ENG. Initially I will be using the 16mm for lifestyle, slo mo's of action sports, and FX. I'd love to get something that can do 64fps or better to facilitate clean slomo's. I'm asking about SUPER 16mm because I have been through telecine with a friend. We dumped his super 16mm from an old beat up Kodak to HDCAM. I was told super 16mm has a similar 16:9 aspect ratio and optically blows up easier.

Anyhow, I know of Aaton, Arri, etc... I guess I'm just looking for general feedback and advice. Any and all is welcome. Specific places to buy and people to ask for are apprecaited as well!

Thanks...

JoshuaOne.
