Camera: Vista Vision


Overview

Beaumonte Vista
The Beaumonte mini vistavision camera is a small and compact camera designed to allow vistavision format shooting on Steadicams, remotes and aerial platforms. As it is so small and useable it is constantly used as the main vistavision camera for many feature films.

Utilising Arri 2C adapted crystal base plate and 400′ mags the Beaumonte Vistavision becomes an Arri ‘friendly’ camera system for existing Arri equipment.
