James Frezzolini was famous in the USA for adapting and upgrading Auricon 16mm newsfilm cameras. With distribution by F&B/CECO Inc (Florman & Babb/Cine Equipment Co) these adapted Auricon 16mm sound-on-film (SOF) cameras were known as ‘Crop Tops’. Cameramen preferred the lighter Cine-Voice with its added 400ft magazine. Various Cine-Voice ‘conversions’ were advertised and carried out (in particular by James Frezzolini 'Frezzi-Cordless'), but not by Auricon who refused to adapt their own product. Originally, the Auricon Cine-Voice was only 100ft loading. However, with the top 'chopped off' and an added 400ft magazine, the entire camera was now suitable for news gathering and as a bonus, weighed in at only 7 kgs. Originally the Auricon had an optical sound head, but later versions used a magnetic head and striped film. Zoom lens by Angenieux 12/120mm f/2.22.
