http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...5&category=4690 I have posted the above link out of curiousty. I would like to know if I can use this adapter to connect my canon still 35mm lens to a Bolex H16. I am a undergrad student and the lens at school are kinda iffy at best would this be a viable solution or worth trying.
If you are using a 100 foot day light spool in a shaded area you should be fine. I actually loaded my spool inside my truck. In my experience the first couple of seconds of my footage are over exposed, so to be safe i usually run the camera and count to about 10 then being my shoot.
