  1. I just got an Eclair NPR for a great price, and it came with this Perfectone Type MC 1440 C motor. I have done a lot of research and I couldn't fine any information about this motors. I read all the topics that I could find here in the forum and I found some interesting but mixed information. I understand the original motor didn't have any lights or switches. This motor that I have has a little bulb and it has a switch, for that reason I guess the motor was modified, but I don't know if it's Crystal Sync and I have no idea what the switch does. The XLR connector is a 5 Pin connector. I read at least two versions of the manual and it doesn't mention 5 pin connectors, it mentions that the Perfectone has a 4 pin connector. I learned by searching the threads here that some motors worked with an external box, but I have no idea what was it's function, I saw a picture of one of those boxes and it has a 4 pin Cannon connector too, so I'm confused. As shown in the picture of the removed Cannon connector at the base there are 5 cables coming out of the motor, I guess the two thin green ones carry pulse tone and the 3 thicker ones are the most important in terms of power, one is red which is the thickest one, one is purple and one is orange. Purple is soldered to pin number 1, orange goes trough the main power switch and ends up at pin number 4 and the red one goes trough the switch as well and ends up soldered to pin number 5. I'm going to test with a multi meter, but just looking at the circuit I think red is +, purple is - (coonected to pin 1 as the current standard) but I have no idea what the orange one does. Of course I want to replace the connector with a 4 pin standard so any help with that is welcomed too.
  2. Hi all, I'm looking to purchase an orientable Angenieux viewfinder for the Eclair NPR. I have the original Kinoptic viewfinder which is being laser brightened soon, but I would love to have an orientable vf in the kit. Let me know if anyone has any leads! Thank you, Tristan

  4. Hi peeps, I just posted this lens on eBay, so if you are looking for a C-mount lens that will cover the S16 frame here is one. I only ship to the lower 48 United States. https://www.ebay.com/itm/153231296621 Thanks for looking
  5. Hey everyone, I’ve decided to sell my Ultra16 converted Éclair NPR kit. I bought it in 2008, and sent it to Bernie O’Doherty at www.super16inc.com for a simple clean, lube, alignment and convertion to Ultra16 aspect ratio. After that I shot about 15 rolls and then put it in my bedroom closet. It’s been there since and unfortunately I’m no longer shooting with it. I charged the battery and the camera runs, but I don’t have any film to run through it. The motor is a Perfectone. It has a Tobin TXM-6 crystal sync with 24 or 30 fps. The motor has a metal tripod base that can be removed for easier shoulder carrying. The lens is an Angenieux 12-120mm zoom f 2.2-22 with lens hood. There is also has a C-mount lens mount on the turret. It has a Kinoptik viewfinder (the shutter on the eyepiece is a little slower to close so some oil would maybe help that out). Included are two 400ft magazines. One made in England. One made in France. Included is a 12 volt battery with an over-the-shoulder pouch and power cord. The whole kit comes in two metal flight cases with foam padding (one for the magazines, one for the body/lens/battery). The camera is in good condition and is already converted for widescreen, either Ultra 16 or Super 16 can be achieved with the modified gate. Also included are rails, IndiFocus Pro Follow Focus with assorted gears, and a Harrison changing bag. I’ve uploaded some pics of it HERE. If you have any questions or want more pictures please let me know. If you’re interested let me know where you are and I’ll take it to get a shipping quote. I’m asking $1000 U.S. or best offer. Thanks, Scott
  6. I recently purchased an Eclair NPR with Perfectone motor from some one who doesn't know much about it. While practicing to adjust the shutter with some stripped clear film leaded in the mag, I noticed that the film gate covers the film aspect and one perforation side. Does this mean that the camera has been modified to super 16?
