I have a shoot next week with the ARRIFLEX 35-III.

Will it even work with an EFP? it's stock, aside from a Monitor upgrade, and a G50 arm.

Thanks

Shouldn't have a problem. Try to get the steadicam mags though, otherwise you'll be fighting the weight shift. The viewfinder is attached to the door and protrudes out on the camera more than your use to, allow a bit more room on your outside clearances (no issue if your goofy).

Low mode can be tricky if you don't have the steadi mags. I couldn't get to work with the brackets the house had because we didn't have steadi mags.

It's IMPORTANT : for ARRI35III max power voltage is 14,0 Volts ! No more !

Hi Bryan
I would ask the rental House for the fixed viewfinder which is smaller then the Hand held viewfinder (Huge one) Yes steadicam Mags Jerry Hill Arri 3 LMB or cage as well. You may need a Y (Cam and Aux )power cable if you are doing any high speed or you could use a battery belt instead.As for the video split well it would depend on which type the rental house have digital or B&W .You could use a Precision camera video relay lens which fits on the viewfinder of the camera less weight again .
Good luck

Hey Brian,

As those have said before, Steadi mags are a must, especially if you need low mode. For low mode, if they can't provide you a low mode bracket, give me a call. I have one designed specifically for the Arri 3, and it's been collecting dust for a while now. You can use it for the cost of shipping back & forth.

BTW, the Cinematography Electronics high speed base needs it's own 12v power. You're not supposed to use a Y cable, but give it dedicated 12v power. So that's one 12v feed to the camera, and one 12v feed to the HSbase. Most people do this from the AUX power output on a PRO J Box. Since you have a different rig, you should test this ahead of time.

Good luck,

Thanks everyone for the help.

I'll ask about steadimags. I'm guessing they won't be available. But no low mode, just walking around a stage.
Thanks for the low mode bracket offer.

My main concern is the weight without steadimags, and the power requirement. I'm running single Hytron 120s. (1 battery for the Bartech, Cinemonitor, and camera.

I don't know if there is a HS Base for this shoot or not.

I haven't been able to find much info on this camera via the internet. I know it's an older one, But I've never used it.
