  1. Looking to buy an Eclair NPR. PM me if you have any leads. Thanks~
  2. Hi everyone! I'm a young filmmaker that has recently decided to dedicate myself completely to shooting on film. I've been shooting 16mm for years, but have never owned a camera myself. I've decided to invest in a camera as I'm always on the go, and to keep borrowing cameras is getting too complicated. I'm searching for either an Eclair ACL II or the Aaton LTR 54 (also open to LTR 7).
  3. Hi, looking for an Eclair ACL package, preferably in Europe. 16 or s16 converted is fine, no ultra 16 thought thanks. On a bit of a budget so so don’t need a massive package, enough to start shooting though preferably. Feel free to message here or email me at jackcurtisdop@gmail.com. thanks
  4. 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
  5. Hi there, I finally have gotten my Eclair ACL kit to work, and it has been out on a handful of jobs. I love it. Thing is, I am now making a video tap for it, to try to modernize and make it an alternative to the alluring SR's, and 416's of the world. One issue though is that the repairman that made my conversion, Bernie at Super 16 Inc, made the frame lines by hand. And that's all good for myself using it privately, but it does come across as a bit unprofessional in the working world. My question is, is there anyone in the Los Angeles area that potentially could make me a custom ground glass to replace what I already have in the camera? Preferably someone that knows Aatons internals (since they are basically an Eclair). //C
  6. Does anybody happen to know where I might be able to find a working 400' magazine for an Eclair ACL II? I haven't been able to really find any on ebay recently. Thanks!
  7. 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
  8. I know this is going to sound dumb, but I have an Eclair NPR camera and I cannot find the serial number on it. I removed the motor, I looked all over the place and I couldn't find it. This specific unit was modified by Les Bosher, so they may have removed the plate or something. They changed the tourret and maybe the serial number was there. I want to send the camera to service and it would be nice to know what the serial number is so I can have more info about the camera. Thanks
  9. My first test with a 3 perf cameflex was perfect except for the gate flare present in the negative. Just want to confirm this is the case... however the triangle flare isn't vertically/horizontally flipped as the rest of the image. Looks like it's flaring/bleeding into the next frame. As far as solutions...paint the mask? Both sides? Which paint do you recommend? Attached below are the stills, and of the gate, with and without the shutter. Many thanks!
  10. I'm ready to do some tests with my Eclair NPR camera and I have some questions after practicing loading the magazines... Obviously I'm missing something simple and I've spent some time searching yet haven't found the answers so please forgive the basic questions: 1) Can someone explain the importance of the "loop"? It's very specific about 12 images with 6 on each side. I don't think the manual I have explains why this is important and what will happen if the frame count of the loop is incorrect or if it's out of alignment. Will it effect the image? Will there be flickering? 2) Assuming the loop is important, why is it necessary to then press the film into the magazine? (thus reducing the loop, I count 8 frames after my loop is pressed in). The videos I've seen go to some length to detail exactly how the loop is formed... only to quickly say "and then when you're done you press it in and load it onto the camera..." Again please forgive my ignorance and thanks for your patience -B
  11. Hi there, I believe that this is probably something that has been discussed before. But I hope there are some new things that can be brought up with this question. I have an upcoming project in the fall, and the director and I have decided that we want to have the anamorphic look for a short we will be making. Now the flares are not the most important thing, but rather the vast image that we are going for. The problem is how to achieve it. First idea would be to use my own S16 Eclair ACL, with an PL adapter, and we were considering renting pure 1.33x anamorphics. But as far as I know, the only ones to rent at the Hawk's, and they would cost us pretty much the complete production budget to get a set. Second idea we had is to use a R16 Arriflex SR and put Kowa 2x on it. The real issue here would just be the wider shots, since we basically loose all the width in the image. Third idea is to invest in a Panasonic AG-LA7200 adapter, with a 0.25 diopter, and use B4 lenses on the ACL to get the image we are going for. I also have a person that can make a M4/3 adapter for the ACL, so any M4/3 solution would work as well, but honestly I am open to any ideas you might have. And yes, both me and director are 100% set on shooting on film stock. C
  12. I'm looking for a power source for my Eclair NPR 16mm camera and I think I'm starting to get a rough idea of what to look for (still open to suggestions tho) but one key question: does a higher frame rate require more volts? The manuals I've seen online suggest a 12 volt, 3-5 Amh battery to power the Perfectone motor but I've seen discussions about the motor stopping as soon as the FPS rate goes up. Someone who appeared more knowledgeable than myself said the higher frame rate would require higher voltage. Possibly up to 15 volts. However I've also read discussions where people warn against using a battery or power source that is rated higher than the suggested voltage for the motor. Any thoughts or experiences with this subject? Thanks
  13. Hi there, Finally I have had my ACL serviced by the best, Mr Bernie O'Doherty, and finally I can use it to shoot something serious. But to be serious, you need to have the complete set. And right now I am look for some accessories for the camera. First off is the top handle. I do know that Les Bosher sells one, but me and him do not seem eye to eye, so that is not an option. Second I am looking for is a new rubber cup for my viewfinder, the one I had just broke and I need something to replace it. if you know of any other accessories that might be necessary and you want to off-load, please reach out //C
  14. Hi everyone, thanks for having me. I'm new to cinematography, being a still photog for about 20 years now. I have a tight budget to shoot 16mm and bought an Eclair ACL II kit for 500€, including Angenieux zoom, 2 400ft mags, kinoptic viewfinder, case, battery. The camera has hardly ever been used. It seems to run OK for now, i've not used it yet really. My intention is really to use the camera on the shoulder most of the time, so I was kind of surprised when trying it. I have a MIMUL motor, which is actually large and seems to take the place of the shoulder between the body and the mag. Am I doing something wrong ? or is there really no good way to shoulder an ACL II & MIMUL combination ? If not, is it possible to replace the motor for the standard one ? It might be getting me on another problem as I'd like to shoot long takes, so I'd be happy to keep the sturdier motor to use the 400ft mags... but just to know theoretically, can I remove the MIMUL ? it doesn't look like it. thanks for your help !
  15. Hello everyone, I'm looking for this part (see on foto) or whole viewfinder, and looking for the motor, and video-assistant, and new obturator for these cam. I can trade some of these positions on lomo lenses. Regards, Vitaly.
  16. Eclair Cameflex CM3 35mm 2-perf techniscope camera for sale. I'm asking 2400USD for it. This camera is one rare 2-perf techniscope modified CM3 with PL mount. For those not aware of 2-perf, it basically is a modification which allows you to shoot Cinemascope directly on the neg reducing the stock cost to about 50%. I bought the camera from Film-camera-kit UK in 2011, and have never used it. I bought it from them in good working condition and maintained. I have only unpacked the camera and since then it has been stored, since I did not have time for my original intention of shooting shorts with it. Now I figure it's better to sell this beauty to someone who will have more time for it. Included: Tobin crystal sync motor Tobin Time Lapse motor (Originally for Bolex, but works with CM3) 2 400ft mags 2 200ft mags 2 100ft mags 15mm rods Batteries not included. Can ship it anywhere for additional cost. Not sure about the shipping fee's. But will check it out for the buyer location if interested. Item located in Sweden Mail me at erik@luminante.com if interested. Best Regards, Erik
  17. Hello, for my extra low budget short project I'm searching one of these cameras. Our budget is very very low, we are from Lithuania, so please, if you have any working, but not perfect cameras - write to me. Thank you very much nojusdra@gmail.com
  18. Hello, I'm looking for a few Eclair ACL bits & pieces and wondered if anyone has any that may be surplus to requirement and are looking to sell. I'm after a... ACL 200ft magazine (or 2) Heavy duty motor Orientable viewfinder (with mount) If any one can help, that would be great. Thanks, Mark
  19. Looking for a PL-mount to Eclair TS (ACL) adapter. Make an offer :)
  20. Hello, I'm in the market for a super-16 camera with video assist/tap, 400ft mags, crystal sync at 24/25. Got my eye out for an Arri SR2, SR3, or an Aaton, although a reliable Eclair NPR could do the trick. A camera in Europe is preferable as import duty costs a fortune. Looking to spend £1000 - £2000 ($1650 - $3300) depending on the model and condition. Thanks, Greg
  21. 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?
  22. I'm missing one of the two plates needed in order to use film on a core in the 400 ft magazine. Happen to have an extra one laying around?
  23. PRICE: €600 -------- Here is my set. I don't use this camera any more, so maybe someone could be happy with this old workhorse. It is still in good working conditions. And it's regular 16 format. ECLAIR NPR 16mm body Kinoptik viewfinder Angenieux (orientable) viewfinder Perfectone 24/25 sync motor 3x magazines 1x spare magazine (not working) C-mount - Canon FD adapter CA mount - Arri bayonet C-mount - Arri standard 4pin XLR cable 12v battery 15mm rods I can give for free Canon 15-150mm c-mount lens - in bad shape - hazed images. here's part of film, I've shot with this particular camera: I'm located in Slovak Republic, Europe. The camera set is heavy so I think shipping fee for E.U. could be about €100
  24. ECLAIR NPR 400 Foot Magazine Late-model with two-piece pressure plate. Doors seal well, good working condition. $100 + shipping PICTURES AND MORE INFO: http://www.16mmdirectory.org/marketplace_items/102 Contact a@alainletourneau.com
