Arriflex 35 IIB cine camera made in 1950 by Arri, Germany.

The camera uses 35mm film in 200' or 400' magazines. Arri produced four models of Arriflex 35 II between 1946 and 1964. Richard Lester’s ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ was filmed using the 35 IIB. The turret holds three different lenses, which could be easily switched between during filming. The viewfinder can be closed to prevent light reaching the film when the camera operator is not looking though the finder.
