WTB Eclair ACL (or other regular 16 cam)

Matt Altman

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I'm wondering if anyone has heard of, or might have an Eclair ACL for sale. 

I'm looking for a regular 16 camera for my own practice (not DP work)-- and would be open to hearing of other cams people would consider selling that make great owner cameras.

I'm aware there are a lot of postings like this that do not pan out, so for what it's worth.. I'm seriously hoping to find something soon so I can shoot a project next month. 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you come across a Bolex that's S16 and has a PL mount then you're going to be fine. Plenty of cinematographers I know use them on set and the footage is no different from an SR3 or Aaton (if the right glass is on )

Hi Cale, thank you very much for the response. Yes PL is really nice.. but as I mentioned I was hoping for something I could have my own lenses for on hand... to be able to shoot my own projects. I imagine this would add up. I'm not dying for it to be super and if I think about whether what you mentioned is worth it when the Bolex has a limited take length without a motor.. and an ACL has the bonus of being able to do sync sound if necessary.. well..
