Black Betty Camera

A 2k camera in a time when 4k seems to be the buzz word, but this camera will shoot, edit and post your film. It uses the same sensor as the the SI 2K.

Not sure if this is just some sarcasm on your part -- but I actually like its industrial look/design.

Re: Black Betty Camera

I half expected to see a camera like that being taken out of the wing of a Mosquito and being rushed to Bomber command. I love the retro styling! The camera specs look pretty impressive too.

Re: Black Betty Camera

I was just looking at this yesterday and thought of this thread: Aaton LTR Super 16 film camera | eBay

Really tempted to buy that just to use as an ornament as it is the main camera type we used for UK TV drama in the 80's

Aw man Brian I would love to buy it as we used to hire in Aatons for all the drama we did at Tyne Tees in the 80's but I just haven't got the cash to spare at the moment!

I did pass on the advert to a good friend in Glasgow who is a good film fan but he also has a RED epic so not sure a film camera would be used much, it is a bargain though and good luck with the sale.

All our 80's Arri SR's went in the skip I think but I hope they kept or sold the prime lenses.

Re: Black Betty Camera

There's a bit of settling down as to what Super 16 can be used for, unfortunately, it's currently a bit out of fashion apart from feature films like "The Hurt Locker" and "Black Swan".

No sarcasm, I love the industrial/oldschool look.
