Re: Eclair Cameras: ACL techs

Aloha Fulgencio,

Andrew at AZ Spectrum is modifying the Tobin milliframe controller to switch from camera sync speed to a predetermined milliframe controller speed.  I my case, from 24fps to 30fps, or 30fps to 40fps.  The resulting exposure change would be in the range of 1/6 to 1/3 stop. Combine that with a slight crash zoom and a good colorist in telecine and nobody will notice, even without the crash zoom.

 hi Mercer,
Can you do a ramp speed on an ACL? What about the Exposure?
