With full-fitting dual registration pins, guide blocks on one side of the film, and dual two-pin pull-down claws, the System 65 Studio is one of the quietest film cameras in the world, with a sound level of only 27dB with film. Its 400-foot or 1,000-foot displacement film magazines can be top-mounted to minimize camera length or rear-mounted to minimize height. The camera also features an adjustable focal-plane shutter range of 50-180 degrees.

The camera features a fixed 172.8-degree shutter, full-fitting dual registration pins, and dual pull-down claws, and it is compatible with all Panavision 65mm lenses and 65mm accessories.
