The Arriflex 35 assumed a more significant role in the production of feature films and television dramas in the 1960s. This chapter focuses on its use as a secondary camera, called upon in situations in which a Mitchell (or later, a studio Panavision camera) would be too difficult, expensive, or time-consuming to use. This accounts by far for the largest amount of Arriflex use on American feature films and television dramas during this period.
