Eclair ACL XLR connectors and other List bits
For my money the Neutrik brand XLR connector is the best on the market.
I've built several cables and they are far and away the easiest to work
with. The pins are well marked.
Tip: Pin 1 is a slightly longer pin than the rest and pin 4 is the
farthest away from pin 1. Remember pin 1 is always negative and pin 4
positive. Watch your polarity!
In response to Joshua's request to add the Aaton LTR to our discussions,
I have no objections. For the sake of focus though lets keep it to
French cameras only. Aaton's, Beaulieu's, and Eclair's. No stinkin'
Arri's! (Just kidding, I actually own an Arri M that I dearly love but
don't tell anybody. Unfortunately it's loud as a lawnmower and not
super 16 upgradeable, but Les did offer to give a S16 upgrade a shot.)
And you guys with old Pathe or Debrie handcrank cameras will just have
to go and start your own list:-)
Speaking of starting lists I got my super 8 list going and I'll be
sending invites to everyone on the ACL List shortly. If you aren't
interested just bin the invite. I have no worries that it will be an
active list because super 8 aficionados are a lively lot. I wanted to
ask what people think about a list for the Bolex? My only concern is
too narrow of a focus. One drawback that I found with the ACL List is
that frankly there is only so many ways one can discuss a film camera
(which is the one reason I'm expanding the scope of the ACL List). What
do you folks think? Do you think a Bolex only list is sustainable?
For those of you worried the ACL List will just become a general camera
forum, not to worry. It is and will always be primarily about the
Eclair ACL, but I don't see any harm in including other cameras in the
discussion. We're all in the same boat: keeping our dusty ol' cameras
Ray the List Mum
ps. The irony of my statement "French cameras only " is that both my
ACL's are of the English variety. Once I add Robert Latimer's DC2Light
motor there won't be a French part on them.
