Hello everyone,
I was wondering how costly and difficult it is to get an Aaton LTR 7 converted to super16.
I was also wondering if anyone knows how hard/costly it is to get a video tap attached to the same camera, and the same about getting the camera converted from Aaton to PL mount.
Thanks a lot.
Tomas.

I stand to be corrected, but I believe that Aaton LTR-7 is already modified to film Super 16. It the earlier version, the LTR that is normal 16mm.

Aaton LTR-7 are not factory made super-16. If you want your LTR shoot super -16 you need to get the gate made wider and the lens mount then needs to be shifted. I think it costs in the range of 2,000 but I am not sure. Best of luck.

It'll cost you a fair bit mroe than that, but I'm not infront of my work computer so I wouldn't be able to give you a solid quote untill Monday.

You're looking it upgrades on your magazines, a new eyepiece, a new gate, a new groundglass etc...
