MVF-1 paint stripping off

Mon Feb 01, 2021 12:03 pm

Hi everyone,

I wanted to ask if anyone had any recommendations on how to get my MVF-1 repainted?
The paint has unfortunately started to strip off (see attached pic).
I've looked into hydro dipping, but that doesn't work without taking the MVF-1 apart.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your time,

Dear Rob,

please get in touch with ARRI Service, they can be of help in that matter!

May I ask how you ended up with loosing paint in that spot?
We know of wear and tear marks on spots where the camera/evf makes "easy contact" (e.g. ALEXA's "fins").

Hi Jan,

Thanks for your message.

I did get in touch with Arri here in London, but they had no idea.

How do you usually treat your wear & tear marks on the Mini's that you come into contact with?
