Re: Eclair Cameras: ACL Shopping

Hi Bill

I have an ACL that has been converted to super 16mm
and have not had any of the problems that you have described,

I have shot three features with my kit, it has a B&W video split,
and I have never had a mag to fall of,

the camera has performed faultlessly and I have been very happy with it,

Don't understand why a fixed shutter opening should cause problems,
it means that you are locked into that shutter opening,

My mags are all 400' and when looked after properly they run quietly and

mind you I have a great technician looking after it

Subject: Eclair Cameras: ACL Shopping

I am new to purchasing of a motion picture cameras, and have been
looking at the Eclair ACL.  I was wondering if anyone who is experienced
could help me in the field of knowing what is a good purchase.  I've
been searching for awhile.  My wants are Crystal controlled super 16mm.
Prices are there, but is the ACL a good buy.  I know they tend to be
quieter, and lighter.  But talk on English Mags pull easier on 400 foot,
but easy burn out motors with high cost to replace, and constantly mags
falling off.  French and english models.  One guy says french is better,
next english.  ACL 1, 1.5, & 2.  One guys says that they are just 1 for
english and 2 for french.  To me they seem to be different models
completly, 2 looking to be the best, but can't find.  And Fixed shutter
opening, has this been a problem for anyone.  Some people say NPR is
better, is this so (NPR looks very bulky) I would appreciate as much
feed back as I can get.  I appreciate your time.
