RE: Eclair Cameras: ACL 1.5 motor vs. 2 motor

With my 1.5 motor I adjust the inching knob to quiet the camera when film is loaded. Is this necessary with the 2 motor?

On the 2 do you have to depress the recessed inching knob in order to get it to emerge for inching purposes?

No, It's already set in position as is.
Another factor that may have influenced the newer version (#2 ) was that they developed an electronic way to have the mirror stay in the viewing position, therefore inching wasn't necessary.
