Dear Friends,
Since its introduction in 1999, the ARRICAM system has quickly become
the premium choice for cinematographers worldwide. Since then we have
listened carefully to your feedback and analyzed the camera's performance
on a multitude of sets. As a result we have introduced numerous additions
and improvements.
To increase the system's breadth and flexibility we have added parts
like the Universal Viewfinders, extra magazine adapters or the Remote
Control Station. Based on popular demand we have introduced
improved camera control panels and wireless camera remote control.
And we have further extended revolutionary tools like the Lens Data
System, added lens information to the video assist image and created a
smaller Lens Data Display.
The ARRICAM system is a modern and complete camera system providing solutions for almost all shooting challenges. This guide was created
so you can easily navigate the many parts of this system. In addition to
descriptions of the new ARRICAM components it also contains many
updated or new overview graphics and look-up tables.
I hope this System Guide will be a useful tool for you,
Regards,
Prof. Ing. Fritz Gabriel Bauer, AAC

Introduction to the ARRICAM System
The ARRICAM system is a complete 35 mm film production system
with modern features including Super 35, dual pin registration, optional
3 perforation movements, brilliant viewfinders and high quality video
assists. The system consists of two camera bodies, the ARRICAM
Studio (ST) and the ARRICAM Lite (LT), which are accompanied by a
full range of electronic and mechanical accessories.
ARRICAM Studio
The Studio is an extremely quiet sync sound camera, and the Lite is a
small and lightweight camera designed specifically for Steadicam and
hand held operation. Both cameras have the basic controls (fps, shutter
angle, footage counter) built-in. Advanced features can be added with
integrated expansion modules, like the Speed Control Box, Manual
Control Box, Timing Shift Box, Lens Data Box, In-camera Slate Box
and wireless lens and camera controllers. The system’s modularity allows
productions to assemble camera packages with just the features they need.
A high level of component interchangeability gives rental houses great
flexibility.
Two magazines have been developed specifically for the Studio camera,
and two more for the Lite camera. The two Studio magazines are very
quiet and run forward and reverse, and the two Lite magazines were
kept to a minimum in size and weight through the active displacement
mechanism. With the use of adapters, all four magazines can be used on
both cameras.
A complete range of viewfinders can be mounted on either camera.
This system includes two viewfinders for spherical viewing: the Lite
Viewfinder and the Studio Viewfinder, and two viewfinders that switch
between spherical and anamorphic viewing: the Lite Universal Viewfinder
and the Studio Universal Viewfinder. All viewfinders can be equipped
with a large number of accessories. The two video assists for these
viewfinders have all 435 IVS features, including many improvements
and added functions.
With the Speed Control Box, camera speeds can be set with 0.001 fps
accuracy, the camera can be switched from forward to reverse run, simple
1-step speed ramps with shutter or iris compensation can be performed
and the camera can be synchronized to an external source, like a video
monitor.

ARRICAM System Guide

With the Manual Control Box, camera speed and shutter angle can be set.
If used together with the Speed Control Box, manual speed/exposure
ramps or depth-of-field ramps can be performed.
For more sophisticated ramps, and for wireless remote control of all
camera functions, the Wireless Remote Control integrates seamlessly
into the ARRICAM system.
The Timing Shift Box gives the cinematographer the possibility to alter
the phase relationship between mirror shutter and movement, resulting
in a streaking effect.
The Lens Data System automatically reads focus, iris and zoom of LDS
lenses. All lens accessories connect to the Lens Data Box, which also contains the radio for wireless lens and camera control. Two Lens Data
Displays are available to show lens settings and camera status, to calculate depth of field and to set focus marks: the LDD Classic and the
smaller LDD-FP.
The In-camera Slate System is a replacement for smart slates. It exposes
man-readable characters onto film before an image is recorded, including Timecode. This data can be extracted manually or automatically
during telecine or afterwards in post production.
Compatible ARRIFLEX Accessories: Wireless Lens Control System

ARRICAM Studio
ARRICAM Studio
The ARRICAM Studio (ST) is a very quiet 35mm sync sound production
camera. Magazines can be top or back mounted. The basic controls are
built into the Studio camera control panel (see second picture): RUN
button, RUN LED, PHASE button, fps setting, fps display, shutter
selector and shutter display, as well as an UNLOCK button to activate
the fps and shutter selector buttons, and a BRIGHT button to adjust
the brightness of all LED displays on the camera. The FPS- and shutter
displays will also show warning messages. The integrated footage display
counts EXPOSED FILM and RAW STOCK. The same controls can be
found on the ARRICAM Lite. Other controls on the Studio are a
DUST CHECK button and a beeper volume dial. The film gate accepts
an aperture format mask and a gel filter holder. The internal heater is
thermostatically controlled and is automatically activated in low temperatures.
Included in the camera package are: Studio Viewfinder or Studio
Universal Viewfinder, Studio Eyepiece, Top Load Adapter, film gate,
filter holder, aperture format mask set.
Compatibility: Studio and Lite share the same field lenses and ground
glasses. The ARRICAM ground glasses do not fit in MOVIECAM or
ARRIFLEX cameras. The aperture format masks and gel filter holders
are the same as used in ARRIFLEX cameras. For shooting Super 35 in
ANSI format with an ARRIFLEX 435 or 535 camera, special ground
glasses and aperture format masks are available. In that case, timecode
cannot be recorded on the ARRIFLEX cameras.
ARRICAM Studio: Extended camera control panel
The camera accepts the Studio Magazine 120/400 and 300/1000 in top
load or back load position. With Lite Mag to Studio Camera Adapter
the Lite Steadicam and Shoulder Magazines can also be mounted in
back load position. The ARRICAM lens mount accepts all LDS and
non-LDS PL mount lenses for 35 mm film cameras.

Magazines
All four ARRICAM magazines can be used on the ARRICAM Studio
and on the ARRICAM Lite camera. All four magazines have a built-in
thermostatically controlled heater.
On each ARRICAM magazine the amount of footage loaded can be set
on the magazine footage counter, either in meters or in feet. Also the
ASA value of the film stock in use can be set. Setting the ASA value is
essential only when working with the In-camera Slate System, since it
determines the intensity of the In-camera Slate data exposure.
To mount the Studio magazines on the Studio camera, either the Top
Load Adapter, the Back Load Adapter or the Dual Port Adapter is necessary. To mount the Studio magazines on the Lite camera, the Studio
Mag to Lite Camera Adapter is necessary. Lite magazines can be
mounted on the Lite camera without any adapters. To mount Lite magazines on the Studio camera the Lite Mag to Studio Camera Adapter is
used. Studio magazine run forward and reverse. Due to their compact
design Lite magazines run only forward.
To ensure that the Lite camera is as small and lightweight as possible,
it’s magazine attachment mechanism differs from the Studio camera’s
mechanism. Whereas the Studio has a mechanism reminiscent of the
435, the Lite uses a mechanism similar that of the 535B.

Viewfinders
The ARRICAM viewfinder system includes two viewfinders for spherical
viewing (Studio Viewfinder and Lite Viewfinder) and two viewfinders
that can switch between spherical and anamorphic viewing (Studio
Universal Viewfinder and Lite Universal Viewfinder).
All viewfinders can be mounted on Lite and Studio camera. The two
Studio Viewfinders are bright and versatile with a brilliant image quality,
while the two Lite Viewfinders are optimized to be small, lightweight
and well balanced.
Both Studio viewfinders can use the Studio Integrated Video System (IVS),
which attaches to the viewfinder’s right side to leave space for top
mounted magazines. Both Lite viewfinders can use the Lite Integrated
Video System (IVS), which mounts on top of the viewfinders to provide
better balance. The beamsplitter for the video assists sends 80% of the
light to the operator and 20% to the video assist.
The Heated Eyecup, the 6.6” Video Monitor, and the 2” Video Monitor
can be used with all viewfinders.

Turning the ring zooms the image from normal size to 2x magnification.
An anamorphic element can be switched into the light path.
Just like the 435 Anamorphic Viewfinder, the ARRICAM Studio and Lite
Universal Viewfinders only show a correctly de-squeezed, rotated and
shaped image when the viewfinder arm is in the horizontal position, either
on the left or right side of the camera. If the viewfinder arm is between
these two positions the image is distorted. This distortion cannot be corrected with the manual image rotation control. The situation is different
when using the ARRICAM Studio Anamorphic Extension to de-squeeze
the image. When the viewfinder arm is anywhere between the horizontal
and vertical positions, image squeeze and shape distortions can be compensated for with the manual image rotation control, even though this will
result in a rotated image. When the viewfinder arm is in the vertical position (the eyepiece is above the camera), a properly squeezed, rotated and
shaped image can be achieved by taking the Studio Anamorphic Extension
off the viewfinder, rotating it 90 degrees, and re-attaching it.

Electronic Accessories
Through their built-in control panels, both ARRICAMs can be operated
without any electronic accessories. But for remote control, special effects,
synchronization or faster working a complete range of electronic accessories
is available. These accessories communicate through a robust and high
speed internal data network and most of them attach directly to the
cameras or can be operated remotely.
Beyond the camera controllers like Speed Control Box, Manual Control
Box or Timing Shift Box the ARRICAM electronic accessories also
encompass two revolutionary new systems: The Lens Data System and
the In-camera Slate System.
The Lens Data System is based on smart lenses that inform the camera
about their focus, iris and zoom settings. This information is used by
the camera and various accessories, making filming easier and faster.
With the Lens Data System the crew can work more efficiently, which
ultimately saves money on the set.
The In-camera Slate System records letters and numbers into the image
area before each take. This information is man and machine readable in
post production. It can either replace a smart slate or be used to automatically synch audio in telecine.

Speed Control Box (SCB)
The Speed Control Box integrates three main features into one accessory:
The speed control feature allows the setting of the camera speed with
0.001 fps accuracy, to switch from forward to reverse run and to perform
simple 1 step speed ramps with or without exposure compensation. The
iris control feature allows for iris compensated speed or shutter ramps
when a LDS lens and the Lens Data Box are present. The synchronization
feature synchronizes the camera to an external source, e.g. to a video
monitor. A RUN button makes it possible to start and stop the camera
from its right side or remotely. With the BRIGHT button the brightness
of all LED displays on the camera can be adjusted.
Compatibility: The SCB attaches directly to the Studio camera or to the
Remote Control Station without tools, using a quick release mechanism.
A connection to Studio or Lite camera with Remote Cable KC-65 (3m/9ft)
or KC-69 (15m/45ft) is also possible. The cable drum KC-73 (50m/150ft)
can be used for additional extension.
The Manual Control Box has to be removed to attach or remove the
Speed Control Box from the Studio camera.
For the SYNC function, the existing ARRI External Synchronization Unit
pickup and the new ARRICAM ESU cable KC-66 (10m/33ft) can be used
to sense the sync signal from Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT) monitors. For
synchronizing two or more cameras the Camera Sync Cable KC-78-S
connects the CAC connector of the master camera to the SYNC IN
connector on the SCB of the slave camera.

With this box camera speed or shutter angle can be changed on the fly,
just by turning a hand dial. If used without the Speed Control Box,
camera speed and shutter can be set over the whole available range. If
used with the Speed Control Box, the range from slowest and fastest
fps can be limited, and manual speed/exposure or shutter/iris (depth of
field) ramps can be performed.
Compatibility: This box attaches directly to the Studio camera or the
Remote Control Station, and can be connected to the Studio or Lite camera
with the MCB Cable Adapter and the Speed Control Box Remote Cable
KC-65 (3m/9ft) or KC-69 (15m/45ft), with or without the 50m/150ft

The Timing Shift Box adjusts the phase relationship of the mirror shutter
to the movement. The result is that the film is exposed while being transported, which creates a streaking effect. A unique feature of the Timing
Shift Box is the Jitter function. It introduces a random fluctuation in the
timing shift, resulting in a fluctuation of the length of the streak.

Lens Data System
The Lens Data System (LDS) automatically reads focus, iris and zoom of
LDS lenses (currently Ultra Primes, Cooke S-4, Variable Primes and
other zooms). A Lens Data Box (LDB) each attaches to ARRICAM
Studio and Lite. The lens information gathered by the Lens Data Box
can then be used in a variety of ways:
•
The Lens Data Display (LDD or LDD-FP) shows lens settings and
camera status, calculates depth of field and allows setting of focus
marks and focus tracking.
•
The Studio and Lite Integrated Video Systems (IVS) can insert the
lens data information as text into the video assist image.
•
The Wireless Remote Control (WRC) and the Speed Control Box
(SCB) can use the lens information to run speed/iris or depth of
field ramps.
•
The ARRIMOTION system can read and record all lens information
and export it for further use in post production.

In-camera Slate System
The In-camera Slate System can be used just like a timecode slate. The
system accepts SMPTE timecode input. In addition slate information
can be entered via a Hand Held Computer. The In-camera Slate avoids
the disadvantages of conventional slates, such as poorly readable hand
writing, erroneous information, slates outside of the image area, out of
focus slates, underexposed slates and so on.
All information on film is clearly readable in post production and can
be read either in telecine or later by a human.
With the In-camera Slate Reader it is possible to automatically extract
the In-camera Slate information in telecine or later. Automatic audio
synching and logging of timecode and slate data speeds up post production.

ARRICAM System Guide
The In-camera Slate System
consists of these components:
Recording Module
The In-camera Slate Recording Module consists of an array of 16 by 36
LEDs and an optical system. The module is installed behind the ARRICAM
film gate below the aperture. The brightness of the LEDs during exposure
is controlled by the ASA setting of the magazine used.
Compatibility: The In-camera Slate Recording Module is identical for
Studio and Lite. It has to be installed by an authorized ARRI Service
Center..
In-camera Slate Redording Module
In-camera Slate Box (ISB)
The In-camera Slate Box is the system’s brain on the camera. It controls
the exposure process and sets the proper shutter angle during and after
exposure. It stores all slate information, as well as the timecode provided
by the built-in timecode clock.
To enter and edit timecode, userbits and slate information a Hand Held
PC is used. For timecode and userbits it is also possible to jam-sync to
an external timecode generator.
Compatibility: The In-camera Slate Box fits on both ARRICAM
Studio and ARRICAM Lite. On the ARRICAM Lite, the Lite Lens
Data Box must be present to mount the In-camera Slate Box.
In-camera Slate Box (ISB)
Hand Held Computer
With the Hand Held Computer slate information, timecode and userbits
can be entered into the In-camera Slate Box. This information can be exported
as takelist and transferred to another computer for post production purposes.
The cable KC-H-1 (0.5m/1.5ft) connects the Hand Held Computer to
the CAC connector of the camera.

In-camera Slate Reader
To dramatically improve comfort, reliability and throughput in postproduction the In-camera Slate Reader can automatically read all slate
data that was exposed on film. This is done through optical character
recognition in telecine or later while the images are loaded into the
editing system.
Using the In-camera Slate Reader in telecine makes creating video rushes considerably faster and simpler since the In-camera Slate Reader can
automatically synchronize the audio and log all In-camera Slate information.
For the use in non-linear editing systems, the film is transferred in telecine
without any extra steps. The footage is then loaded into the editing system
and at the same time sent to the In-camera Slate Reader. A list of all Incamera Slate information is created during this process, such as name of
production, director, Cinematographer, take number, scene number and
film timecode.

ARRICAM System Guide
Ground Glass Overview
This table is an overview of ARRICAM ground glasses, Frameglow masks, aperture format masks and the corresponding
items for the ARRIFLEX 435/535 cameras. A complete list of all ARRICAM and ARRIFLEX ground glasses and masks
with dimensions can be found in the ARRI Format Guide.
There are currently two types of ground glasses and corresponding masks for the ARRICAM cameras: Normal 35
(Academy) and Super 35 (ANSI). Note that ARRIFLEX cameras also have Super 35 (DIN) type ground glasses and
corresponding masks. Those are not as wide as the Super 35 (ANSI) format to make space for the ARRIFLEX timecode. When using Super 35 (ANSI) ground glasses and corresponding masks with an ARRIFLEX camera, the timecode cannot be used.
There are no aperture format masks when shooting with a 3 perforation movement. The cut out in the film gate
defines the image size. The cut out in the film gate defines the image size (13.9 x 24.9 mm).
