No, it's not quiet enough for sound shooting.

I am being offered one of these (body only) for about $3.5K. is that good and, more to the point is this cam any good..... (a *switchable* Super 16 and Super 35 camera)....wowee...could be handy...what's the quality like on this baby and is it sync-sound silent? anyone have any idea?
Its normally 35mm / 16mm switchable. Its possible that it has been modified to be 'Super 35 & Super 16mm'
Make sure that you have all the 'bits' for both formats!
Many people use them for timelapse, lighter but not as steady as a Mitchell.

This is a camera that is 35-45 years old, and that can mean a lot of issues for maintenance, accessories, etc. It also means that it will be very heavy and bulky for Super-16 work. If you are generally planning to shoot Super-16 sync-sound work then I would not reccomend this camera. Look at a CP-16 or Eclair NPR or ACL instead.

You can get a Tobin sync motor for a few hundred bucks
I don't know where, we have been out of stock for years and still get requests for one, though not enough to warrant building up another batch of them.
