Loading the 416 Magazine
Note: The 416 magazine has its feed and take-up chambers on opposite sides to the SR 1, 2 & 3 magazines.
Step 1: The Feed Side
Load the unexposed film into the feed side in absolute darkness (darkroom or changing tent).
• Open the feed side magazine door and latch back the lay-on roller arm.
• Remove the film from the film can.
• Remove the tape from the film head. Ensure that the tape is completely removed and secured out of the way.
• Place the film roll on the core holder so it unwinds in the direction shown in the picture below. Press it down fully.
Note: When placing film on the feed side core holder, do not push on the film itself as it could become conical.
Push on the film core instead.
• Hold the film roll still and turn the core holder until the core holder key clicks into the key slot of the film core.
Make sure the core holder cannot turn any further.
• Release the lay-on roller arm gently so the roller rests on the outer surface of the film roll. The sides of the
roller should overlap the film roll edges, as shown in the picture below.
• Push approximately 15 cm (6”) of film into the slit at the top of the angled transfer roller. Then thread the film
around the guide roller.
• Replace and lock the feed side magazine door, being careful not to trap any film in the process.

Step 2: The Take-up Side
The following procedures may be carried out in the light.
• Flip the magazine over lengthways so the take-up door is uppermost and the top of the magazine is facing
you. The ‘ARRI’ on the door will be upside down.
• Open the take-up side magazine door and latch back the footage counter roller arm. Fit an empty film core
to the take-up core holder.
• The film head should be protruding from the transfer roller. Check that it is cut squarely through a perforation.
• Thread the film head around the forward guide roller as indicated inside the magazine. Without touching the
film core, push the film head into the upper sprocket roller until its teeth engage in the film perforations.
• Once the sprocket teeth have engaged in the film perforations, turn the film core until the film head emerges
from the magazine throat.

• Set the loop length by pulling the film head away from you and align it with the loop mark on the bottom of
the magazine (see picture above). Adjust the loop length by turning the take-up film core.
• Now take your hand off the film core – there is enough inertia in the sprockets to maintain the loop length.
• Hold the film between thumb and middle finger of your left hand, while using your index finger to push the
film head into the lower magazine throat slot. The angle at which the film enters is not as critical as it is on
SR magazines.
• Keep pushing the film in with your index finger until you see the sprockets rotate. Now take hold of the film
core again and rotate it counter-clockwise. This will pull the film from the throat into the take-up chamber.
Rear guide roller
Footage counter roller
• Thread the film around the rear guide roller following the path indicated in the magazine.
• Insert the film head into the film core (see picture right) and manually wind the core holder
two or three turns until the film winds tightly onto the core..
• Unlatch the footage counter roller arm.
Correct
• Close and lock the take-up side door.
• If using timecode, set the sensitivity switch according to the table on page 19 of this guide.
The switch is located at the top left corner of the feed side door.
