Camera Spotlight - Eclair ACL

Low profile and portability not only gives the ECLAIR ACL camera an elegant appearance, but it is a practical feature which enables the cameraman to take pictures while in a very confined space. The ACL rests low on the shoulder; in fact wherever there is headroom there is space for him to operate his camera.

This self-blimped quiet running camera permits candid shots and unselfconscious action.
