Showscan CP65 with 2500' magazines mounted

As promised, here's a look at the Showscan CP 65 with the 2500' magazines mounted. AMAZING! These magazines are huge! And heavy! And we mounted them without film. My heart goes out to the assistants/loaders who had to handle these. Still, an impressive feat of engineering. In the last picture, we put a 1000' Mitchell 35mm magazine to give you an idea of the scale. The magazines have very advanced technology for the late 1980s, featuring built-in electronics that communicate with the camera's soft start feature, allowing the camera to run at 60 fps without tearing the film. The quality engineering is typical of Cinema Products and Ed Di Giulio and his team. Note that the 2500' magazines are dual compartment, used in pairs with one as the supply and the other as the take-up magazine. The 1000' magazines are displacement style to save space and make the size of the camera package more manageable.

We have very few extra 1000' and 2500' magazines available for sale. A collectors dream! The 1000' magazines are $350 each, and the 2500' magazines are $700 a pair.
