Eclair Cameras: REPLY- Optar Illumina Lenses on Ebay

thanks karl,

i am unfamilier with a 'TS' mount ... what is it? and would that mean i would need to then remove my ca/c-mount from my eclair and replace it with a TA mount? what would be an aprox. cost to convert my camera(it has the hd-144 s16 kit installed, or so i assume it does)? and then you suggest purchasing a les b. bayo to ts mount converter, which i would essentially use for all the lenses in the set? and this little guy costs aprox. how much?

The most economical would be to use the old Arri B to CA adapter, available from several sources. The most elegent would be to aquire an Arri B to TS
lens mount from Les Bosher.
