Arriflex SRI & Arriflex SR3 Physical Differences?

Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:02 pm

Hello, I was wondering if someone could tell me what the physical differences are between the Arriflex SRI and Arriflex SR3?

I have an Arriflex SR soundblimp that fits my Arriflex SRI perfectly but I'm wondering now if it will fit an Arriflex SR3 if I bought one.

Dear Art,

this blimp was a product of ARRI Inc. (ARRI US) or ARRI CSC (Rental) made for SR1. SR2 should fit as well.
SR3 is a larger camera, without testing my colleagues think the camera (viewfinder unit) won't fit. Also, the SR3 runs on 24V whereas SR1 and SR2 run on 12V.

Besides, brochures state around 8 db (A) less noise for SR3 (non HS version).
SR1: 28 +/-2 dB (A)
SR2: 26 +/-1 dB (A)
SR3: 20 +/-2 dB (A)
