Hello,

Pardon the basic question here, but I'm looking into purchasing an ACL or NPR and was wondering if they both have reflex viewers stock, or if it depends on the model, time, etc.
also,
If one doesn't know a lot about the camera one has, how would I direct them to find out what the FPS options are?

Thanks in advance,
Tom

What do you mean by " reflex viewfinder stock " ?

Sorry, I knew that sounded a little awkward, grammatically.

Do single lens reflex finders come "stock" or standard with every one of these models. OR do they vary from model to model. Sorry about the confusion. I'm still learning the proper terms for components.

Thanks

They're both mirror shutter reflex. The NPR is a 1950's design, the ACL is 1970's technology.

The motor itself will have a selecting knob with fps marked on them like 8, 12, 16, 24, 32, etc. If there aren't any knobs, the camera motor will probably be a fixed 24 or 25 fps. but it is hard to tell without looking at the motor directly.

I wouldn't buy a camera from someone who can tell you that most basic info about its motor, though, unless you are paying next to nothing for it.

Hi Tim,

please don't post the same question to several sub forums. Thanks!

Hi Dave,

That was my bad. I realized that I posted in a forum that I wanted to post in the regular 16mm. However I could not delete my previous post.

Anyway, sorry about the double post that was not my intention.
