I've been watching  XTR Prods but finding them just out of my financial reach right now.  However, I'm now looking at an XTR Plus that looks really nice and I might be able to swing the price.  At this point, I don't know if it's the 60 or 75 fps version but am finding out.  If I take advantage of this and grab the Plus, am I going to regret not holding out for a Prod?  Thanks, Tom

 

This does have the Aaton mount rather than PL which I would have preferred.

It is 12 volt rather than 16 which is preferable I believe.

All of the Aaton's can run on 12v, so that's not an issue. My batteries are all 14v though.

Aaton made 4 generations of XTR. The "Plus" is gen 3, the "Prod" is gen 4 and the Prod + is just an update to the magazines and maybe software.

The XTR Prod has a few key features... These are the ones I can remember.

- A brighter 35mm style viewfinder
- Adjustable shutter angle
- 72fps(infinitely variable speed control from 6fps to 72)
- Timecode capable
- More efficient on battery usage
- Better video tap (in most cases)
- Removable 1.85:1 ground glass standard
- PL mount (super 16/standard 16) standard
- Tools in the handle grip
- Aaton glow
- Blacklit display
