NOTE: I’ve left this page up as a reference. This was my personal 16SRII that I owned and operated for 10 years.


  • 16SR II-E No light meter, like the SR3 Advanced, which makes the viewfinder 25% brighter. The viewfinder is as bright with the Jurgen’s video assist, as a standard SRII is without video assist.
  • PL Mount, Super-16/ regular-16 Switchable.
  • P+S Technik Super-16 Conversion, maintains 180º shutter angle with SR3 pull down link. You can’t shoot monitors with the other conversions that have 172.8º shutters.
  • Adjustable Pitch Control (like SR3) for sound level reduction.
  • Includes choice of one Super 16 Fiber Optic Viewing Screen (ground glass, fiberscreen) in your choice of format markings, and one SR3 TV/1.33 standard 16 fiberscreen. See this page for choice of available format markings.
  • Upgraded with latest 1.26mm Registration Pin from SR3 for perfectly steady registration up to 75fps, movement capable of 200fps with optional P+S Technik High Speed Conversion.
  • Two 400ft Mags, converted to full Super-16 compatibility by P+S, including repainting and new SR3 style rubber handles.
  • Two On-Board Batteries, upgraded with Victory Battery’s 1.80 Amp-Hour high capacity cells. CinemaTechnic One hour Digital Peak Detecting Charger is included (charges both batteries in less than one hour).
  • Jurgen’s Video Assist with Color CCD video camera. This is one of the the best video assist conversions on the market. It is fully Super 16 compatible, unlike the Lee Utterbach conversion*. The Jurgen’s has a perfect picture that never goes out of focus or alignment. This is the preferred SR video at rental houses in the U.S. This video assist tap alone sells for $3,100.00, without the CCD camera. The only better system we have seen is the P+S Technick SR3 style video assist, which is $2,461.00, and also requires either the $4500.00 SR 3 Optical Elbow, or the $1800 CEI Optics and the $10,500 CEI Color VI.
  • Dual 11-pin Fischer Sockets. Can power a speed control and zoom control at the same time.
  • Built-in 24, 25 and 30 fps Crystal.

Included Extras:

  • Right Handgrip
  • Digital Voltage Peak Detecting Charger. Can charge both on-board batteries in 1 hour.
  • ARRI LWS (Light Weight Support) Mini-Rods
  • ARRI BP-7 15mm Bridgeplate with 17 in rods and Dovetail Balance Plate
  • ARRI EFC (Electronic Footage Counter) digital tachometer and footage counter, or ARRI-Tach with same functions, plus analog variable speed control (choice of one).
  • Custom fitted Pelican 1650 case, with heavy duty custom cut foam.
