In the early to mid 1980s the BBC replaced all their Arri BL and Angenieux 12-120 lens news gathering kits with Aatons and Zeiss Distagon lenses. These were used for filming interviews and other banal stuff. A bit like using a Ferrari to drive to the corner shop, as we say here!

Technically speaking, Panavision NEVER sold their film cameras, you could only rent them. In fact Accrding to Arri, Panavision was Arri's biggest customer. Panavision did at one time own Aaton (If I recall) but that was so they could get the little Aaton Code diode technology, Panavision later sold Aaton, again if I recall. I bought an Aaton way back - around 1998 or so, it was made in the 1970's and was a "BBC" camera at one time in its life. -- Steven Gladstone New York Based Cinematographer Gladstone films Blog - 917-886-5858 _______________________________________________ FrameWorks mailing list
