Re: Eclair Cameras:

Consider buying a mini-DV or Digital8 camcorder instead of a DV
recorder/LCD.  I bought the Sony TRV-530 D8 camcorder and use it as a field
recorder, field monitor, playback VCR, still camera, analog to DV and DV to
analog transcoder, music playback, timecode slate ... and as a camcorder,
too.  It cost $700 street price about two years ago.  It has a 3.5 inch LCD
screen.  I would have bought the camcorder with a bigger/better CCD but
Sony put a 2.5 inch LCD monitor on that one.


hello everyone,

i have finally decided to have the acl II i purchased(which the seller
FINALLY got in touch with me ... sergey, the russian ebay guy) sent
directly to andrew at azsprectrum to have a s16 color video tap
installed.  however, i would also like ot have an s16 conversion
performed to the camera.  would it be better to have azspecrum perform
the tap first, then have the s16 conversion done second?  or the other
way around?

also, regarding the s16 conversion ... i noticed that lee boshner in the
uk does a conversion for about $600.00.  could some people give me some
heads-up regarding what acl s16 conversion is truly the best in terms of
quality, dependability, and price(in your own honest opinion based on
your own personal experiences)?

i need to know this info sooner then later because i have ot have the
camera shipped from russia tomorrow or the next day, and would like to
send it directly to the s16 conversion place or azspectrum ... but need
to know what work should be performed first.

and one final question ... i was considering purchasing one of those
little portable dv recording decks with the 5" display as my monitor for
the video tap so i could record my scenes to dv so i could essentially
see my filmed scenes without having to send the film off for processing
and transfer.  has anyone done this, and if so, could you tell me if the
quality is acceptable?  it seems silly to purcase a $500 LCD only
display when i can spend $800.00 for an LCD AND dv recorder.

thanks for your help.
