Re: Using 16mm and S16

The steadiest camera in S16 per rental house folks I know is Aaton's

Aaton LTR and XTR are exemplary. No pin but their spring loaded claw
and long channel actually outperfoms Arri 16SR 1 2 & 3, exception
being the 16SR3 Advanced where they copied Aatons idea.

I have done virtually unnoticeable double exposures with my Arri 16S
(fs btw), a different movement from the 16SR

Bolex _can_ have very good registration but this takes some fine
tuning when servicing, I wouldn't just pick one up and make assumptions.
I've done reg tests on all 4 I've owned and several for friends.
