  1. Thanks Dom! The ground glass is focused to my eye and i have a berthiot 10mm that focuses perfectly through the viewfinder at all distances. Actually I forgot to mention that the focusing ring when i first got it would skip frequently when pulling focus too fast. I think i helped it by applying pressure and turning the focus wheel. Im not sure if this helped spread grease throughout the lens, im no expert!! It still skips from time to time. Probably the lens needs a CLA. Do you know anyone in North America that can do this? Im in canada and i dont think Jean Louis Seguin is working anymore (no response to my emails 😞)
  2. Hey guys, Just got the 18-85mm vario switar for my rex4 bolex and the focusing is throwing me off a bit. First, is this supposed to be a parfocal lens? Secondly, I think there might something wrong with the lens/my camera as when i focus it to infinity through the bolex and zoom in to 85, the picture is not in focus (obviously aimed at something really far away). I have to pull focus to about 20 ft or so for it to be sharp zoomed in. Is this normal? Pretty new to this so any help is appreciated 🙂 Cheers!
  3. Well heres a video of it https://imgur.com/a/z4Z6xzu Everything seems to be running fine without film. I can put the spool on the take up without film and it runs well. My loops are correct. I got the camera off ebay from russia. Most likely hasnt been serviced. I feel like im just missing something small. Maybe im too dumb for 16mm.
  4. No both are metal spools. Its very confusing
  5. Just got the k3 but im having INSANE trouble trying to load the film. I got a dummy roll from a local lab. Im using the correct loop lengths and the film is catching on the sprockets (no loop maker btw). But everytime the film starts running the take up spool jams and the film stops. When i try to take the take up spool off it is really snug and tight on the holder. At one point the screw for the take up holder was coming off so i tightened it a little. Maybe someone can tell me what their k3 take up holder looks like? The camera runs fine other wise. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! 🙂
  6. Hey Thomas! Just got an Npr myself. What battery solution did you go with? I wish there was some kind of onboard battery
