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

... incidentally; there appears to be two types of 1.5 motor that look identical... one is a bit smaller and has no self parking.

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.
