RE: Eclair ACL Do it yourself projects
I had a self-supporting bellows matte box that I was selling for $450 that
fitted onto the top handle block on the Eclair ACL. It was held with a
single lightweight bar. Very simple and very cost effective, but I removed
it from the site due to very low orders. I only have one left now which I
have already promised to a buyer in the UK.
This matte box could accomodate Tiffen or Cokin P series filters. The
Tiffen really weren't recommended unless the matte box was fitted to the
lens, but the P series are so light and cheap they were perfect.
If anyone is looking for a supplier of matte boxes I'm sure I could help. I
have no idea what Les Bosher is charging but I'm sure it's a lot more (but
I'm sure it's a superb item though). I wouldn't proceed with manufacturing
again unless I could get quantity orders.
I wish someone out there would set up their own motion picture equipment
sales company in the USA. I'm stuck in the UK. Help!

or maybe retirement. :)
I came across images of a homemade mattebox for a GL1 miniDV camera, but
there were no schematics, rough drawings, or descriptions of its
Has anyone here had positive or negative experiences with projects like
