We've been talking about this idea in the Production Office for ten years or so. Finally, someone with the wherewithal to turn it into an actual thing did too. A really beautiful idea if you happen to have a dozen Arriflex cameras in the inventory. I haven't seen a real one of these yet, but the concept is pretty straight forward: keep all the wonderful, mechanical guts, lenses, and accessories and replace the mag with an imaging system. As soon as these hit the street, we'll review it and let you know more.
