Eclair ACL ACL serial number info.
My hat is off to Pierre Samuel Rioux. The guy went the extra mile and
called Bernard Dechaumel in France. It wasn't cheap and he had to get
up early because of the time difference, but he did it none the less.
Apparently Bernard is a wealth of information on the ACL. Mr. Dechaumel
doesn't have access to the web so for the time being he will be
communicating with Pierre Sam via fax.
Many thanks Pierre Sam! I'm sending him one of the last of my
homebrewed ACL t-shirts.
Regarding the serial numbers of the ACL this is what was found out:
1970 24 or 25 fps motor
1974 variable speed motor
1976 incorporated a light meter (serial#'s 1500 to 2000?)
And the last ACL builds were 3400 to 3500 serial numbers.
Pierre Sam was able to track down a shutter speed diagram for the
Cameflex/CM-3. It is in French but the pertinent info should be useable
by anyone. He is going to fax it to me when he gets a chance and I will
try to make it available online. Pierre Sam is looking for a Cameflex
user manual. If anyone has one please let him know.
Speaking of ACL t-shirts. I'm looking at making some up and I would
like to gauge interest in the idea. They would be in red or black, 100%
cotton, and feature the Eclair ACL logo in white on the front. I did
some on my inkjet printer last fall but these would be proper
silkscreened jobs. Pricing would be about $12. If you are interested
let me know. Your t-shirt size would be helpful too. I don't want to
order a bunch of XL's and everybody wears large. By the way if you
received one of my homebrewed T-shirts last fall, you'll get a free
replacement tee when I run 'em off.
