Subject: Eclair Cameras: ACL 1.5 motor vs. 2 motor
I have a question regarding the differences between the 1.5 and 2
motors. We all know they are capable of 75 fps. But there is at least
one potentially significant difference between the designs.
The main difference that I can see between these two motors is that the
1.5 has a inching knob that protrudes from the body, and therefore gives
the operator the ability to inch it. On the other hand, the 2 motor has
a recessed knob. Does anyone know why this is, and if there is any
benefit to having one or the other?
I think some shooters complained about the protruding inching knob.
If they needed to really silence the camera with a barney, the protruding knob would whine noisily against the side of the barney.
Also, some people didn't like this exterior shaft rotating out in the open, rather like an inside-out SR.
So finally the French listened, and.....
" Voila ! We have a brillant idea......"
And the rest is history....
