RE: Eclair ACL nice compact zoom for my ACL
Thanks for your help. This is exactly the lens I found today at a great
price - the later black version with both f and T scales. It is in
absolute mint condition, in a little red Angenieux box with red velvet
inside. All of what I do goes to video anyway, so it seems to be the
perfect solution and man is it small and lightweight! On another note, I
also found a nice 200 ft. ACL mag at the same show. So now my compact
16mm setup is complete. By the way, I spoke to the dealer about using
the 17-68mm lens on my Bolex Rex 4 and he said it would be no problem at
all. He said that there is also an RX version of this same lens, but it
was a marketing myth that you needed the RX version on the Bolex. Any
thoughts on this? I know there are a lot of rumors out there about RX
and non-RX primes, but what's the story on zoom lenses?
If you are just shooting for regular TV transfer (not Blowup to 35mm or
HDTV), then the already mentioned Angie 4:1, 17 to 68, is hands down the
smallest and smallest decent zoom that I've seen or used. And it will
Super-16. It was made in both C-mount and Arri-S mount. It was also
both the old silver casing, as well as the later black casing. Optics
supposedly the same, but the glass in a black casing will be less old.
ranges from $200-$500, depending on whether you get it from a private
(like eBay), or a dealer (who should guarantee collomation). When
it, slowly run through the zoom and make sure it is smooth all the way.
sure that the coatings are good (reflect light off the glass and make
that there are no "spots", just an even purpleish tint). Also make sure
the focus barrel has no play in it. These lenses are old, and some may
in as good mechanical shape as others. If the stop ring only has one
then this is F-stops --- subtract a half a stop to know the
PS-I think The Movie House now has one for sale.
