Sounds interesting. It would be a small 35mm camera with 400 foot mags.
In 2 Perf 400 feet is about 9 minutes.
In 3 perf 400 feet is about 6 minutes.
Sounds as though they are completely redsigning the camera as they expect to have a working model by July '06.
Too bad, I have some up coming super 16 projects that I could probably talk into 2 perf if it were easily available.

If that's the case, sounds very cool.

I've tinkered with a design for a miniscule 2-perf camera for years! Damn! But I'm also very happy - it's good that more people are getting into 2-perf, since it's the perfect format for the future. You can trust Aaton - they can always be relied upon to push the boundaries - if it wasn't for them cameras would still be on geared heads and look like Mitchell's.
I know several films that wanted to go with 2-perf this year, but they simply could not find the cameras. And if they did they were to old and wouldn't fit within a modern production environment.
I think I'm going to sign up for one immediately.

There is a prototype by Aaton, I think the name is ¨Penelope¨or something like that. Check it at Aaton site
A mock up was at IBC. It weighed nothing but the case was empty! Good size. The viewfinder was working, not the best i've seen.

>Max, do you really think it's smaller or lighter that the regular 35-III ? Did you use it in scope ?
3-perf is more silent than 4, maybe 2 is even more silent...?
