Re: Eclair Cameras: ACL techs

Thanks Karl,

Sounds like we have gone through the same kaka.
In my opinion you have mentioned the three best ACL techs in the world.

I just sent my ACL to Andrew (AZ Spectrum) to install his electronics
package (2 to 75 fps) cyrstal  push button control along with my Tobin
milliframe controller, so I can ramp speed for sports action.  Andrew is
modifying the Tobin to work in conjunction with the new electronics.  I then
had Andrew send the camera to Bernie for a modification to the mag latch to
keep the mags secured to the camera, naturally, Bernie checked all the
functions.  So I have two techs working with me at the same time, both
coming up with two innovative modifications and also working with each other
for the benefit of their mutual customer.  There is an ACL heaven!

Aloha, Mercer

This is old news now, but I've been very happy with the quality of work of
Bernie O and Les- their charge is also extremely reasonable.  I have been
ripped off and screwed over very badly by a prominent ACL tech.  I've also
purchased incorrectly machined accessories from yet another ACL known
If you really need to know, you can contact me OFF list.  I may only give
you the cities they are located in, but that would be enough information.

In truth, there are so few places to go for service, parts and
so we all need to suffer together to get the end result.  If I keep the
running and properly accessorized, I will be dealing with the offending
techs in the future.  Or if Bernie and Les retire, and 16mm/S16 is still
viable, it'll be time to replace the ACLs with SR3s or XTR Prods. Then
again, I have stories about Arri techs in NYC...

For electronic repairs, I was very happy with Andrew at AZ Spectrum- he
saved an HD motor for me- and at a fair price.

Information on the net is free and extremely biased.  Take it for what
