I've been reading some of the posts here about Eclair ACL cameras. One of the most important things stressed is the cameras problems with pulling 400' mag loads.

So, a heavy duty motor will be fine - what is the other motor known as? The motor that wil have trouble pulling the load? Is it a "multi speed motor"?

Will the non-heavy duty motor pull a 200' load perfectly? Is it only a problem with the 400'?

What exactly is the problem with pulling the 400' load and how often will such a problem occur? Is it guarneteed to happen everytime?

What if you load a 400' mag only half way (with 200' of fiilm)? Can this be done?

I know - tons of questions. I expect a full report on my desk by Monday morning.

Thanks.

Another question - same topic:

If the motor on an Eclair ACL can operate up to 75 fps, does that automatically mean that it is the heavy duty motor? Or not necessarily?

Thank you.
