  2. Hi, If anyone knows of an Arri 16 SR for sale or has one let me know. Thanks
  3. Hi, I am also in the process of having the Eclair ACL converted with Les, it's with him for the second time now as after having it for 6 months and sending it back to me, I opened the box to find the camera in bits as it wasn't packaged properly, partly ups's fault, but there simply wasn't enough packaging around the camera. The magazine dented and snapped, and the viewfinder completely smashed, and he says he's unable to find a replacement. Although he has been very helpful, I had to send it back at my own cost, and i'm still without a camera. He's in the process of re-repairing it now, but seeing as others have had issues with Les it worries me that things haven't been done correctly. But I'll see how it all comes back. Les seems like a very friendly and chatty guy, but maybe i should've used Bernie. But until i get it back and test it I don't want to make a too negative verdict, but so far I'm not really impressed.
  4. I believe the batteries i'm looking at have a constant voltage module of 1.5v built in.
  5. That sounds like the best solution, although i'm going to try to house 8 x 1.5v lithium battery's, and solder a xlr female to the housing. Unless anyone who's a bit more technically competent can see a problem with that?
  6. Hi, Might be a silly question or obvious, but I saw this and thought it may be an option? https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072HR211P/ref=crt_ewc_title_srh_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2HBRWDIXVHM77 Any opinions would be great. Thanks
  7. Thanks so much for the advice! sticking to 12v sounds like a sensible option then!
  8. Hi, I thought i'd add onto this, Just bought an Eclair ACL 1.5. it ran at first after charging the battery but now wont start. I'm hoping it's an issue with the original batteries? It's 4 pin jaeger on the cables, batteries and camera body. Instead of getting it re-celled I was thinking of getting a 4 pin jaeger to D-tap cable and then a D-tap battery? https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01KJL59KK/?coliid=I1QFCN8GYWPSXO&colid=1F7VYVTJIAKS9&psc=1 can the battery be a higher than 12v? or will this cause issues with the motor and I'm having a hard time finding a 12v d tap battery.
