Re: Eclair Cameras: Shooting 35mm lenses on 16mm camera

Hei hei

I'd like to ask you about the Nikkor lenses again. Are they sharper than the
Schneiders -- I mean the old Arri Schneiders? Here's the strange thing. I
have a Nikkor 50mm and a 12-120 Angenieux zoom lens. I tried them on my
ACL -- just sighting through the viewfinder without shooting film, and ...
the zoom looks better. I know it sounds crazy, but can that be?

If you find out, let me know, as I am considering the same. I would like
know if anyone has used Nikon lenses on either 16mm, S16 or 35mm? Do the
zoom lenses function the same to zoom while filming. Some people say yes,
others say no, and I have an Eclair I want to buy in S16 that HAS the
adapter, so I need to know this?
