If we told about Eclair ACL-1.5 or ACL-2.0 good camera, but, Angenuex lens not good choose,
the good zoom lenses with CA mount Canon 12-120 mm and Scheider 10-100 mm ( modifed ).
Eclair can have adapter for set russian OPF-12 10-100 mm zoom lens, this lens will better from Angenuex


You can discuss with me derectly olex@a-teleport.com

Eclairs are solid cameras..... like he said though the older angenieux lenses can look pretty crappy, but then again a modern super16mm zoom lens will cost a good $200/day to rent, and over 5000 used to start!

ACL cameras are very portables, lightweight and quiet.

1800 seems to be the average for regular 16mm on ebay....
might want to hold out for something less though.. might get it for under 1000 if you keep a look out.. you can spend the difference getting it serviced
