Re: Eclair Cameras: hd-144-installation-questions
If I assume correctly, you just purchased that "new" old stock Eclair
ACL off of ebay. If this is so, you undoubtedly have a ACL II. I should
also mention, seeing the condition of that camera and the price you
paid, you are probably the envy of every member on this board. I for
one wanted that camera.
The viewfinder and base you have declare it a ACL II. The motor, grip,
and mag latch also reinforce this, but were also available on the so
called ACL 1.5.
I should also mention that I have bought some camera equipment from
that Russian Ebayer, and didn't have a problem. So you should be able
I've seen you pop up on the Super8 forum and realize your background
and what you were trying to do with that whole DVD project, and
encourage you to do it. I can't believe the flack you took from that
board. If I'm ever up in Mexico, I'll look you up.

of the ground glass.

i have searched but have not found information regarding serial
numbers to determine what model of acl i have. perhaps some of you
may know or could help me? the serial number for the camera is 2115.
the hd-144 website indicates i need to determine if my camera is an
acl I or II(also, i personally would like to know if it is french or
english made, and what year it was made). any info greatly apreciated
regarding installation of the kit, any of you done the work
yourselves? the instructions seem straight forward, but perhaps some
personal experiences can shed some additional light on the subject
matter. also, i see there are a few other people/companies that do
their own conversions ... based on experiences, quality, etc., would
anyone have the opinion one conversion if beter then the next? if so,
why? unlike my beaulieu r16's which there are no avialable s16
conversion kits(which is why i've had to forego the process myself),
the acl seems well covered, and i for one have no intentions of
creating my own converson from scratch. also, i have to do the
conversion myself, as it is too costly for me to be sending the camera
in and out of mexico, so that is why i am going to go at it myself. i
think the only thing i will actually send out is the ground glass to
be brightened and etched. any good suggestions as to who cna etch
safe marks for a good price?
and one more question not related to the s16 conversion; has anyone
here tapped directly into the port on the body and installed video
tap without messing with adapting the viewfinder(to avoid the use of
any prisms/beamsplitters, etc.)? if so, what mm lens did you use ...
