The Arriflex 16mm SR 3 Advanced is one of the most popular 16mm cameras on the market. Designed to meet all modern production requirements, it features a bright viewfinder, a newly designed film guide with sapphire rollers on both sides which reduces film dust development and enhances image steadiness dramatically in telecine transfer, and the Integrated Video System (IVS) offering the maximum video quality. With its off-set PL lens mount it is easy to change the recording format from Regular 16 to Super 16. Equipped with timecode, the Arriflex 16SR 3 Advanced offers direct access to electronic post production. A manually adjustable mirror shutter and the smooth operation level of 20 dBA (+ 2 dBA tolerance) expand the working possibilities of this universal production camera.
