Aaton LTR S16 Film Package

The Aaton LTRs and XTRs are legendary analog 16mm film cameras. In terms of functionality, they are comparable to the Arri SR series. The camera is ideally designed for shooting from the shoulder, earning it the nickname ‘The Cat On The Shoulder’.

This LTR has had an S16 conversion, which means that you can shoot both in 1.33 (4:3) aspect ratio and 1.66 (similar to 16:9) aspect ratio. Anamorphic shooting for 2.39 aspect ratio is also a possibility, using a Kowa Bell & Howell 2X anamorphic block.

The Aaton is available for rent with myself included as a technician, camera assistant, clapper/loader, camera operator or director of photography. Don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail and discuss options.
If you’re as excited about shooting on film as I am, chances are we’ll hit it off right away ;).

In addition, I can advise on the purchase of film stock and the options you have with regards to post-production.
