Marking Bolex Groundglass for 16:9

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm shooting with a regular 16 Rx5. My final film will be 16:9 though. Up until now I have just been eyeballing the framing, but I'd like to mark off the groundglass to a 16:9 aspect ratio. Has anyone done this with a Bolex? I was planning on just using scotch tape, as I've seen pictured in some other posts on the forum, for Arri's I believe it was.


Would I be taping the top side of the prism/groundglass element?
