Re: Eclair ACL October "Heads Up"

Nope. I was disappointed to see that it makes the ACL look like a just slightly more ergonomic NPR. I would have loved a small side-mounted motor like the Thompson-CSF multimotor. Oh well.

Hi fellow Listnauts,

This is the last regular "Heads Up" that I'll be sending out. Yeah, I

know you are all heartbroken. If something important comes up
the List I'll let you all know. But going forward I prefer to blend
and just contribute my two cents when I'm feeling frisky.

Well onto some ACL news. The good news as you may or may not know, is

the arrival of the Tobin ACL motor. If you need a better motor for
pullin' those 400's, this should fit the bill. Go to
www.tobincinemasystems.com and check it out.

I am happy to announce that I'm teaming up with Les Bosher to import

Stateside some of his cool ACL specific items. Les builds a nifty 4x4

matte box with mini rods that won't put you in the poor house. Les
builds a variety of lens mounts for the ACL as well. I'm buying a PL

mount myself. He is also working on an inexpensive follow focus unit
handgrips that mount to the rods for better handholdability. If you
a complete list with prices email either Les or myself
(cinesota@yahoo.com). You can pay me in US funds and I ship from here
the US, saving you international shipping costs. I suggest everyone
visit Les' website (www.lesbosher.co.uk) and check out his PL
of a Bolex. It's gotta be seen to be believed.

Les is also engineering some cine-style gear for the Canon XL-1, if
that's your cup of tea.

Now the really boring stuff.

I opened up the subscription process. I don't have to approve
subscriptions any longer. I mainly did this because I wasn't getting

notified by Topica when someone was in the que waiting to sign up.
many times I would be doing some List maintenance when I would notice
new subscriber waiting to get in. I had no idea how long they might
been waiting. If you were one of these unfortunate souls, my
if you had to wait. This should fix the problem.

In order to encourage new subscribers, I have restricted the archives
viewing by ACL List members only. If you want to view past posts, you

will have to log in at Topica. If you are having any problems let me

know and I might be able to help. This is an experiment so we will
how it goes. I recommend setting your prefs to digest mode and saving

the daily digests.

Lastly, make sure that your email address is working correctly.
shuts off anyone who's email bounces for a period of time. I have to
in and manually turn you back on. If your email keeps getting bounced

back, I will have no choice but to delete you. I will try to get
of you before I do this.

That's about it.

This is your fearless List Mum signing off.
Take care all,
