Hi all guys,
just a couple of questions:
does anyone know how many Eclair Panoram have been made and how much is the actual value of the camera?
Thanks
Giorgio

Hi Giorgio, Just a few prototypes... They were shown at Photokina 1982. I have actually seen one ;-)

As for the value of the camera, very hard to tell (too few built, unknown real-world operatability,...), not to mention the upheavals in the 16mm market today !

Ciao, Boris

Read this and weep. Apparently they had designed a variable gate switchable between Standard 16 and Super 16, i.e http://eclair16.com/...r-ex16panoram/. Aaton subsequently bought the technology and patents. IMHO, the Aaton camera is a very worthy successor to the Eclair line.

I tried to visualize (hand held) operating with a handle like that. My wrist was sort of fully twisted. Didn't like it. The normal ACL "ergonomic" handle is sort of OK, but really heavy and should let the fist close tighter. And it was too short.
