We are very excited to announce another superb addition to our pool of film cameras, the Aaton Digital PENELOPE! In excellent condition, this camera is silent, lightweight, easy to use handheld and offers sync-sound and, crucially in this digital age, a timecode option. Thanks to the possibility of switching between 3-perf and 2-perf, this is a great affordable option if you would like to shoot on 35mm. Check out our product page [bit.ly/3bRUqvZ] for more info. If you’d like to familiarize yourself with shooting on 35mm (or 16mm) cameras we offer a great and comprehensive workshop as well. For more information, check out [bit.ly/2OHHEHt]!

Our latest tool is the TRACIS Lens Scanner, which uses state-of-the-art machine vision to inspect the surfaces of our lenses in incredible high resolution. The Scanner allows us to track every element inside the lens and even the outside housing, over the lifetime of the lens, providing our clients and ourselves with an impartial and certified assessment. Thanks to powerful cloud computing, a scan takes just a minute to complete and registers any and all scratches, hairs, dust and fingerprints before a job. After returning from a shoot, the Scanner can highlight any changes to the state of the lens, eliminating judgement calls and difficult conversations. Check out tracis.io for more information!

This is the standard for using the ARRIFLEX 416 with an additional power supply. Our friends from @elokuvakonepaja were able to create an adapter for our ARRIFLEX 416's so that it can used with an extra battery. No more fiddling with adapter plates and cables. The adapter changes the volt from 12 to 26 and it comes with a D-Tap and Lemo 2pin port on the side. In the future this will also become available for the ARRIFLEX 235 and the ARRICAM LT. We'll keep you updated!
