  1. Sorry Dom, thought you wanted to see on camera but you probably just wanted pics of the adapter itself! Anyway as you can see it doesn't completely seat, and won't even start to thread on my Rex4 H8 because H8 center turret screw is larger that H16. If you need more pics just ask!
  2. I have the Beaulieu (Rittner) M to C mount adapter works great on my Beaulieu 4008ZM's and R16, but won't fit the turret of a Bolex. Adapter hits the center screw of the turret and will not fully seat.
  3. Hey Dom, just curious what you use to clean stubborn haze? I have a 50mm f1.8 Yvar with some haze on the rear element simple cleaning wouldn't take care of. Cheers
  4. Hello! Auctioning off my early Bolex Reflex with variable shutter mod by Tullio Pellegrini, an Italian American cinematographer and camera shop owner who was based in San Fransisco. Bolex later took his work and it became the Rex O Fader. These rarely come up on the market, and this particular camera has all the mods he offered, including modification to the viewfinder. I've actually never seen another like it in my 20 years of using Bolex's. https://www.amateurcinema.org/index.php/filmmaker/tullio-pellegrini Now on to this particular camera, cosmetics are very good, matching serial numbers body/film door, nice strong spring, variable shutter working, basically fully functioning. Has 3 c mount lenses, first is a Switar RX 16mm, user cosmetics, focus and aperture are stiff but usable, would benefit from a CLA, comes with from/rear caps. Second lens is a Som Berthiot 25mm f1.8, good cosmetics, focus and aperture are smooth, good clear glass with some dust, front/rear caps. Last a Kodak 63mm f 2.7, rare black finish, user cosmetics, clear glass, comes with Hood/no caps, I really like the rendering of this old lens, has a useful macro feature. Also included is some small bits, like turret caps, rewind crank, instructions/warranty card, set of filters, and a flat camera base. https://www.ebay.com/itm/334261028796
  5. I use just the winding handle from the Rex O Fader sans mounting the Rex o Fader on the camera to achieve that stand off room
  6. It would have been avoidable if the seller stated CAD in the first place!
  7. https://camp-fire.jp/projects/view/505585 (use google translate) Crowdfunding to help Retro 8 move to a new location! Tak San has done a lot for the 8mm community not only in Japan but around the world! He is offering some great rewards for your donations! Please help if you can!
  8. Luuk, well happy to see you have made some progress but unfortunately can not offer anymore advice! Looks like you need some sort of device to measure the pressure, seems to be mentioned in the article attached!
  9. Yes, EM/MST both also work with Rex5/SBM Cameras, but as you said, ESM has variable speeds and works with battery grip!
  10. Some vintage glass interferes with the mirror on Canon 5D's, its not the adapter. You can shave the mirror to clear, you should be able to find out more seating the web, or maybe using just live view?
