Eclair ACL thinking about purchasing an acl.
Hey all, this is my first time writing to this discussion group, however I've
been reading many of the different threads on this chat room for several
months now. I am almost convinced on purchasing a s16 acl. However, I have
been advised against it by a few industry pro's who are more experienced than
myself. There reasoning ranges from the acl being too old of a camera and
that replacement parts are not readily available to the acl not being
considered a true professional camera, unreliable, too fragile, unable to be
correctly be converted to s16, and a whole host of other excuses. I value
these guys opinion but it seems to me that every one of you on the eclairacl
chat seem to be very happy with your cameras. I would appreciate it if you
acler's would help to dispel the myths and lend your expertise to help shine
some light on the subject. I am in the market for a sync sound 16 mm
preferably a s16 camera. Aaton and Arris are at the present moment out of my
financial reach and since I am still, to some degree, a novice, I don't think
I would purchase an Arri or Aaton even if I could. I've been advised to
purchase a brand new Bolex, although they are great cameras, they are not
sync sound. Could someone help me with my dilemma I am anxious to shoot film
but I'm confused as to which camera to buy. I like several things about the
acl (onboard batt, sync sound, 70 fps, etc.) but my concern is whether buying
one is going to be a dream come true for me or a nightmare.
Someone please HELP!!!
