  1. WOW, just finished up a conversion to the EBM - But in the conversion process I found that the 13X viewfinder got 20% wider... its huge now!!!
  2. Hello Again, Dr. Bolex here again, Anybody have any suggestions on an ALTERNATE power supply for the Bolex EBM's? Since the standard issue battery is not cheap but worse very hard to find. SO, what about a simple 12V 3A DC power converter plugs into any 110 AC outlet. Then can be plugged directly in the camera... Also an option is to have batteries for use in the field. Thought?... what am i missing?
  3. Well that one is gone quickly. SOLD IT this morning.
  4. Hello Again, Here yet another super 16mm conversion on a REX 3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/292012712980?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  5. Good Morning Brenton... I'm having trouble trying to visualize what you are describing... could you send a picture? thanks!
  6. Hello Jean-Louis, Well yes it does have an on/off... it'd on the grip holder... that where the battery would go... but instead I'll make a plug same as the ones already there where you connect the power supply (A/C) there could be an out board battery pack just not the original ones. thought?
  7. Hey camera people!!! Some EBM cameras have battery power supply... anyone have any thoughts on just switching that out for a regular 12V power supply like what's on you laptops. only gotcha i see is you need power!... these batteries that are made for it are expensive and hard to find. Well I was going to do that to the EBMs unless someone can tell me why not! Thanks, Your replies are welcome, Arthur!
  8. Thanks Ted!!! Here's another conversion and a relist of a previous camera. REX4: Complete conversion http://www.ebay.com/itm/292003998004?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 REX: Complete conversion with enhanced reflex viewer. Switched out the optics and wow and much larger image. http://www.ebay.com/itm/292005549636?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Thanks for looking... Arthur!
  9. WOW it is possible to get 10X and 13X plus almost 16X it's huge. Without distortion and pleasant to view.!

  11. Hi Michael, The conversion was done at the shop of Dr. Bolex.... I made the conversion plans and specs and had the work done there myself. Did it all the modifications by the numbers and seem to have worked great... However I will say brought me to my knees machining the new parts.
  12. Super 16 Reflex Bolex H16... The conversion has been made and ready for action!
  13. Seems like we're all saying the same thing...from our own POV.
  14. exactly... that's the beauty of film...
  15. OK... Guys thanks for all the wonderful feedback on this topic... But here's the thing, film give you that "film look" if you will... where digital can but you gotten mess with it and know what you're trying to achieve let alone have the tools to do it... where as film just gives you that look... with all it's flaws and imperfections. You can get that charm the ability to suspend disbelief that movies deliver and that's the attraction to film. Along with the mystique of film production... most equipment has a high gee-whiz factor and that too is an attraction. As far as old vs new... well it's only money... The things is you want your camera to be reliable. That's why old equipment must be rebuilt to insure this confidence.
  16. Very interesting Pav!!! How old is the redux of the Ikonoskop camera??? I seem to recall seeing it somewhere... Yes, it has a very carry a high degree of hotness... But all that and still no reflex viewing... Would it not be top on the list to have reflex viewing and even an option for HD signal output to video assist display? I can understand the noise... but you enter a whole new level when you try to silence a mechanism the was never meant to be silent... That is the big line in the sand...
  17. Well maybe not a new machine... but what about a conversion? You can now have a wider image. That should be relatively simple. Just a little adjustment here and there...
  18. Hey Group... What cameras are you referring to... or needing converted? Bolex? or other?
  19. Tyler, Pressure plate??? How is it different on a Super 16 camera vs Standard 16?
  20. Has anyone had any experience with a camera that have been converted to Super16? What are their short comings if any???
  21. Shooting Super16... does anyone experience a vignetting issue??? Arthur!
  22. But non of these 16mm cameras you mention are super16 right... ? is anyone doing any time lapse on 16mm? Has any of you guys shot without a reflex viewfinder?
  23. Thank you Tyler, what a wonderful story... My First camera was a Brownie 8mm in 1968... it had frame by frame capability so i shot everything in stop action... ( i have the patience of Jobe) and that landed me a job in an animation studio. The animation studio supported the larger larger commercial film production facility. So I got to enjoy Arri's and and Michell 35mm and from there went to Hanna-Barbara. Hated that and move to CGI... which in the the 1970's was still in it infancy. if you wanted to do anything you need to write the code or get it from the government or NASA. There we spent over a year trying to understand the differences between film and video. That in itself is another story... But that was when I got my first Bolex.
  24. did you pay over $1,000 for it (if I may ask)... body only? H16 or REX?
