When you buy from CinemaTechnic you are paying for peace of mind. You have my assurance that anything you buy from CinemaTechnic is ready to shoot the day you get it. No nasty surprises.
Unless noted, only one of each item is available. If you’re interested get in touch now before it’s gone:

SPEED CONTROLS AND DISPLAYS
Cinematography Electronics Precision Speed Control Mk. II
The best digital speed control ever made for ARRI 16SR / ARRI 35-3 and 35 BL III/IV. Controls camera speed in .001 fps increments. Includes digital active tachometer (camera speed) and film use counter (feet or meters, switchable) with memory – won’t loose count when camera is shut off. Automatic camera detection prevents setting speed higher than camera maximum. Switchable internal speed limiter. Works with most Aaton, ARRI and Panavision film cameras, including 3-perf 35mm. ARRI 11 pin Fischer cable and dogbone bracket included. Cables available at additional cost for Cost for Aaton, ARRI 435, 535, SR3. Excellent condition. Only one available. First one we’ve had available in 10 years. Original cost

Cinematography Electronics Remote Tachometer / Counter Mk. II
A Precision Speed Control Mk.II without speed control capability. Includes digital active tachometer (camera speed) and film use counter (feet or meters, switchable) with memory. Automatic camera detection. Works with most Aaton, ARRI and Panavision film cameras, including 3-perf. Excellent upgrade for ARRI 16SR 1-2 which don’t have footage or frame counter built-in. Know if you have enough film for the next take!
C.E. Tach/Counter with ARRI Fischer-11 cable: Original cost
(Cables available at additional cost for Cost for Aaton, ARRI 435, 535, SR3)
ARRI EFC 16SR Remote Tachometer / Footage Counter
This is the original and rare EFC 16SR. Displays camera speed in FPS and footage used in feet. Connects to the 16SR’s Fischer-11 accessory part. Incorporates a battery to maintain memory of footage used when camera is switched off.
This unit makes up for one of the defects of the 16SR – the lack of a display. Can be used simultaneously with the analog variable speed control (ARRI VSU) and an 11-pin Fischer splitter box (such as the ARRI ZV) Difficult to find –only about 200 of these units were made.
This is a reconditioned unit in excellent condition with new insulation on the cable and repainted cover (ARRI gray).
NOTE: The red LED above the “reset” button indicates that the internal memory battery is dead. This photo was taken before I received a new memory battery. With the new battery installed the unit now functions correctly and the LED is extinguished.
ARRI EFC 16SR: $395.- NOTE: we have this rare item available again due to the customer upgrading to a C.E. speed control. Don’t hesitate if you need an inexpensive solution to knowing film use on the ARRI 16SR I/II.
Cinematography Electronics 16SR 1-2 Built-In Speed Control
A great upgrade for ARRI 16SR cameras. This unit takes the place of the 16SR I/II light meter. The unit combines an expanded crystal speed range, digital readouts, and other features for the 16 SR 1, 2 and 16 SRHS 1, 2 cameras. The SR SPEED CONTROL provides 75 crystal speeds for the standard SR camera and 150 crystal speeds for the SRHS camera.
Precise speed selections in one frame increments are easily accomplished with the push button digit switches that are protected by an integral sliding door. An out of sync beeper with adjustable volume chirps when the camera is not running at the selected speed.
Bright red LEDs display the camera speed in frames per second (fps), and the film count in either feet or meters. Two battery indicator LEDs show the voltage condition of the camera battery at all times.
Original cost of the C.E. 16SR Speed Control: $3500.- (not including installation)
Used C.E. 16SR Speed Control, includes mounting parts and wiring harness (requires installation): $895.- last one!
Installation cost (at Cinematography Electronics) $400.-
Tobin (TCS) TMC2-LCD Milliframe controller. Less than 10 of these were built. This special TMC2-LCD was custom built by Clive Tobin for CinemaTechnic by special request. We needed a digital speed control with a footage counter display to test ARRI 16SR cameras on the bench, and also verify the correct output from the 11 pin Fischer port (camera speed and footage count). Clive had discontined the original TMC2 LED version. He agreed to rig up a one-off LCD version whith a frame counter only. He ended up over-delivering with a full working frame counter, the only drawback being no memory buffer and no reset button. Since all TMC models are discontinued, your only options are to find a barely used one like this, a used one, or just buy a CE PSCII as above for $3300. Includes 11 pin Fischer connector cable.
