But the best 5% are probably shot with Aatons! ;-) Mine, anyway.
If the camera properly registers the film in relation to the perforation,
there should be no need for an external optical registration reference
mark, as the proper perf (not just any perf, actually depends on the
movement used -- for example B&H/Oxberry/Acme and Mitchell use different
perfs as references) contains all the needed information.
However, the Arriflex SR series of cameras, due to poor gate design
(fixed channel, assuming all film is exactly 16mm wide with no variations
from manufacturing, humidity, or shrinkage) often is prone to a diagonal
weave (given the offset loop shape) and combined with an old dodgy Rank
can look pretty bad.
Panavision is part owner of Aaton, and, strangely, Panavision buys more
Arris than anyone else. I will never understand this stuff...
No insult intended towards Arri, I like some of their 35mm cameras very
