Hi,
I have just bought an Aaton ltr7 super16mm.
Unfortunately it was set to standard 16 and I have to set it to s16, and it seems not to be the same super16 conversion as described in the usermanual, but i can not be sure, because of the bad illustrations of this manual.
I managed to shift the groundglass and the lensmount (the lensmout I just loosened the upper 2 screws and shifted it as much to the motorside as possible and refastened the screws, in the manual this operation sounded totaly different).
What I could not do is shift the viewefinder, so I do not see very well the right angle of the super16area. I belive that on my camera it is not possible to shift the viewefinder, how can I understand wether or not the camera has ben modified for this operation?
A foto of this detal of an ltr7 where this can be done would be of great help.

Daniel,
I am not sure if you did the lens mount adjustment properly,
but anyway, I hope that this might help you.LTRpage1.jpg LTRpage2.jpg
