Up on Aaton

This month is your last chance to buy an Aaton Cantar X3 Recorder at the current pricing of $14,990 before manufacturing costs necessitate a $1000 price increase!

Got an old Cantar X1 or X2? Trade it in and save an additional $2500 towards the purchase of the X3!

Both the current pricing and the trade-in offer expire at the end of February, so buy now to lock-in the savings!

Up and Aaton!

A Day with Jean-Pierre Beauviala

After the IBC show last fall, Gotham's Peter Schneider and Christina Z. Wittich were invited to Grenoble, France to meet with Aaton's engineers to learn about and give input to the development of the Cantar X3. They spent an afternoon with Aaton's founder, Jean Pierre-Beauviala, talking to him about his contributions to motion picture cinematography, working with Jean Luc Godard, and the future of Aaton. This short film is a very condensed version of those conversations.
