Hi all,

The eyepiece closing mechanism in the magnetic eyecup on my sr3 was really loose so I took it apart, and reassembled it, much smoother now and does actually lock open. It is however a lot stiffer- does anyone know if the iris leaves are lubricated? Or have I just over tightened to screws?

Dear Christy,
there's no lubrication in the eye pieces. Try loosen the screws a tiny bit and see how it works.

Also: ARRI Service tells me there's two bolts holding the blades. If that comes loose it might tighten/obstruct the blade's movement.
