Hi All,

 

So, I understand that the rollers on the 400Ft Eclair ACL French magazines need to be filed down to avoid scratches in the Super 16 image area.

 

Is this absolutely necessary or will a plain jane French mag generally not scratch the Super 16 frame?  Anyone have experience with using stock French 400Ft ACL mags with Super 16?

 

Thanks!

According to Les Bosher it isn't necessary to modify the mags unless they scratch film. I have two French mags and have done some tests with them. Having inspected part of the film (exposed&non-exposed) there is no scratch but there is some kind of stripe. I'm still waiting for those tests to be processed and scanned to find out how it looks like.
