View Full Version : Bolex H16 tips?

01-20-2011, 01:33 PM

I have a 16mm Bolex [H16] which seems to be in brilliant condition for its age - motor is purring along a treat, I know some of these winder mechanisms can be a problem (previous experience) but this one seems to be great.

It's a pre- reflex model, can't wait to put some film through it :)

Any tips please?

I love me some Bolex.

Check to see if yours uses double or single perf film though. My bolex is for double-perf, which seems to be a little more difficult to find these days. I think it's from the 40 or perhaps 50s. I'd have to dig up the serial # and check that website again.
