Zoom Reflex





Film Format:

Super 16

This is likely the most tricked out Eclair ACL you will ever run across... if there are more mods for this camera I'll eat my hat. This camera was converted to Super-16mm (including a new Super-16mm ground glass).  It has a black & white video tap built into the eyepiece for viewing on an external monitor.  It also has a built-in rail system so that you can use all the latest camera accessories; including matte boxes, follow focus units and more.  It includes a Zeiss 10mm-100mm Zoom Lens, T 3.3, an Angenieux 9.5mm-57mm Zoom Lens, F 1.6, two 400' film magazines, and a crystal sync motor with speeds of 8, 12, 24, 25, 50, 75 fps.  Package also has one standard 4-pin to 4-pin mini plug to power camera (ships with two cables, but one only works intermittently, which could probably easily be fixed.  But for this sale I'm only counting it as one cable).  Camera comes with C-mount, Arri bayonet mount and a C-mount-to-Nikon lens mount.

The Zeiss zoom has a scratch on the front element (shown in pictures) but in all the footage I've shot with this camera I've never seen it degrade the quality.  It should also be noted that the Zeiss and Angenieux lenses are standard 16mm lenses, and at certain focal lengths will show some vignetting when shooting Super-16.  However, all 35mm lenses used with the Nikon adaptor will cover the full Super-16mm frame.

It is used, but in good shape, and I've run tens of thousands of feet of film through this camera.  I have powered up the camera, checked the motor, run some film through it and verified that the video tap is working.  Please note, however, that every major project I've undertaken with this camera I've had it checked out by a camera shop (or at least shot some tests with it) before starting, and I'd recommend you do the same before you make your masterpiece.

Buy with confidence with a 7 day money back guarantee. Camera is shipped in a tough-as-nails Pelican 1650 case.  Local pick-up is available (no shipping costs to you!).  Thanks for looking and please e-mail me with any questions.  Please note: tripod not included.
