I have about 50 broken MVF-2 cables. They are near zero durability. ARRI will have to seriously find a solution to this problem.

Dear Needer,

please share more insights in how the cables got damaged. Is that the 0.5 or 0.35cm cable?
I guess you did not damage 50 cables on one camera. If it was on an ALEXA 35, that would be 2 cables/month :O

We've not encountered any issues with our Mini LF or ALEXA 35 in my department.
I'll ask around anyhow.

Best regards,
Jan

This is a rental shop with over 50 ARRI cameras and I'm the manager here.
There are many cases of disconnection on the yellow boot side.
It is not repairable, so we are paying a lot of money to buy a new one.
I've never seen such a less durable product.
I tried to find a solution such as the attached picture, but even this seems to be a failure.
By specification, it is the same replacement, but the screen is not transmitted properly.

Dear Needer,

as we did not experience a massive issue with those cables so far we'd be interested to have a look at your cables. Please get in touch with your nearest ARRI Service station to investigate the issue and see if we can provide a solution.

Kind regards,
Jan
