Re: Eclair ACL re:- Marks overview
Hi Les. The main reason to converet a 200' mag to 350' is so that you cut
down on the number of mag changes when using the ACL in "lightweight" mode
(The lighter mode is significantly lighter for us small guys shooting
hand-held). When there is 10 minutes of film in the camera, you can really
get some momentum going --- with 5 minute loads you are frequently stopping
and starting to change mags, which is especially bad in a documentary
situation. And the 50 feet that gets discarded is actually less waste than
when you use 2 x 200' loads, since each mag generates a short end ...
frequently greater than 50'. (Also, Kodak will do custom lengths on bulk
I'm glad to hear that you're stilling getting so much film camera work. I'm
hopeful that S-16 film will be around a long time. I'm grateful that there
are still a few guys like you around that can help keep S-16 alive and well.
I hear only rave reviews about your work. Please don't start servicing any DV
cameras! Best, Mark.
