Hi. I was wondering if an Angenieux Super 8 lense with a C mount will work with an Eclair ACL2 16mm camera? Will it cover the full frame? Is a c-mount for a super 8 the same as a c-mount for a 16mm? Thanks!

No idea about the mount, but I'd be very surprised if a lens designed for Super 8 could actually truly cover a 16mm frame area. It might possibly be able to get most of it while vignetting, I suppose. The other question is whether or not the optics would be quality enough to get a decent image if it did cover.

Hi, Jimmy,

Jon is right on target with his answer. In fact, if you were shooting a pirate movie and wanted a spyglass point of view, any Super 8 lens would be perfect for the shot. It would cover only about 2/5 of the frame. The C mount is exactly the same focal distance (17.52mm) whether it's Super 8 or 16mm.

Cheers,
Bernie
