  1. I have only used 100ft rolls and can offer this based on my experience. Unless your talent remains perfectly still and your camera/tripod are bolted down, I imagine it is difficult. Since the K3 is wound, you'll need to know how long it can go before needing to be wound again. Write that number of seconds down. Rehearse and time your scene so you know how long a take can go.
  2. I have listed my very good condition rack-over for non-reflex H model Bolex cameras. I no longer need it, so please take a look! Will ship international. https://www.ebay.com/itm/144350375929
  3. I shot on a Bolex Reflex 1, and recently a Bell and Howell Filmo 70 HR, and use a Sekonic L28c for incident metering. I am by no means a professional, but the meter gets my footage right.
  4. Update: Will lump together and let both sets go for $75 plus shipping if there is any interest.
  5. I am wanting to sell off these lenses to make space and purchase some film stock for my current project. Lenses appear good with working components, the only exception being the Fotasy with the aperture blades not fully closing (see picture). Used for some photography projects. Selling as lots. M42 Mount Lenses - full lot for $75 + shipping Industar 50mm f3.5 Pentor 135mm f2.8 Deitz 28-80mm f3.5 C Mount Lenses - full lot for $30 + shipping Canon TV-16 25mm f1.4 Fotasy 35mm f1.7
  6. I tested the camera with a daylight load of Tri-X I had on hand to ensure there were no issues with the unit and also to see how the two included lenses looked. This was my first experience using a non-reflex camera and there were a couple of times I adjusted the incorrect lens. It appears to run well, just need to do a good cleaning of the gate and get the electric motor repaired for the magazine. https://youtu.be/ocNPKjtWwCw
  7. I was able to get a Bell and Howell 70HR set that includes the camera, two lenses and finder objectives, 400ft magazine, electric motor, cables, winding key, hand crank, and case from a local seller. The camera works well after adding a drop of oil to the various oil points. The electric motor works independently, but when attaching to the camera (with the run button locked down), it doesn't run the camera. I've searched the posts (and Google) for an answer to the following questions, but haven't found anything. 1) Any ideas as to why the electric motor isn't running the camera when connected and powered on? 2) Is there any area on the Bell and Howell electric motor (P/N C01002) that requires lubrication?
