Eclair Cameras: TS-mount


As far as I know, all Eclair ACL's have a TS mount. In fact the HD-144 kit that you bought includes a replacement flange for the one provided on your camera. The flange's outer ring is the TS-mount interface. When you screw Les Bosher's Arri-B to TS mount adapter in here, you are using the outer ring of the flange, not the smaller C-mount that is located in the inner ring. The TS-mount has much better tolerances than the C-mount. In fact, I think that Visual Products sells a C to PL mount adapter (at least they advertise it as such) that I would personally steer clear of because it is better to purchase a TS to whatever adapter for the ACL as the TS ring is a much better mount. I don't think you have anything to worry about with regards to the TS mount, Eric. By the way, I am in the same boat as you are. I am having Mark's kit installed by Bernie at the present time. He is very trustworthy and excellent to deal with. He's got a great sense of humor, and is absolutely brilliant with the Eclair ACL. You should check out his homepage for more information:
