camera choice

Recommended Posts

Im just starting to explore the world of film and I want to buy either a krasnogorsk 3 or Bolex H16 or something just to mess around on a practice with. I figure I should start with the basics. I cant decide what camera to buy! Any suggestions?

I would suggest a Bolex Rex IV or V.The V can take a 400 foot mag and will grow with you.Only used a Kras once and liked it fine except I've heard stories that if you get one where the factory worker had too much Vodka the night before,you may get a lemon.Most folks I've known with a Kras have them worked over from one end to the other driving the cost up,which to me defeats the purpose of buying a cheaper 16mm.Both cameras can be easily converted to super 16.
