Re: Eclair Cameras: A-minima loads

Ah....I've never seen an A-minima load, actually, so I was talking out my

Mark, I wonder if you could remove 1 of the flanges and flip the other 180
degrees to concoct a core adaptor for you mags?

Remember to remove the flanges as has been mentioned. The A-Minima load
is designed for a camera that has a small rubber wheel that slightly
spreads the Plastic Flanges where the film goes past. Theis is because
the Flanges are actually designed to seal against the film on a full 200
foot load, for additional light protection. Failure to spread the
flanges as the film enters can cause noise, and damage to the edge of
your film.
