When adding an AZSpectrum video assist to an Eclair ACL, what mods are common for the VF or the VF mounting bracket.  I asked Andew ar AZSpec this and he replied that a 5mm spacer was added under the VF mount (bracket) when removing the vid assist.  There may have been some confusion about my question to him,  or my interpretation of the answer.  I will ask again.

 

Meantime,  some of you may have dealt with this issue when adding or removing the video assist.  I'm wondering if some techs modify the VF itself when adding the vid assist.  Most people leave their vid assist on all the time anyway.

 

My big Kinoptik VF with vid assist on the camera focuses at about +4.5 / 6 on the diopter scale.  Removing the vid assist I was heading for focus at max negative diopter but couldn't get there.

 

There is a diopter element in the video assist I think.  I will try andew again.  One needs a solution to easily add or remove the video assist. 

 

Any thoughts.

Cheers,

Gregg.
