Hi Everybody,
I am going to work for the first time with the Arricam. I am not shure to have a chance to see the camera before the shoot, so I have some basic questions - Are the cables (Power and start) the same as for the 435? Does the camera suck a lot? .. I mean batteries. Any problems running it with 2 Hytrons? Is it as sexy as it looks? Or whatever you find its important to know. Thanks , saluti to you all!

Hi adam,

I have flown the Arricam ST (studio version) with video top and steadimags.
Yes, same power as 435,535,SR3. Yes same 3pin on/off. Yes, 2 hytrons will drive it , no problem. Brightest video tap I have experienced with film cameras.
Happy flying...

In the ST (Studio) version and if you donĀ“t have access to Steadimags (as in my case) it is also F#%|&ng big and heavy!

Also higher profile and wider than a BL4.
