  1. Roger that man, thanks, im gonna send it into a local tech to get it cleaned. cheers for your advise.
  2. Thanks Dom for the reply, to my eye it appears to be on the inside of the front optic, I checked the prism and appears to be relatively clear, all of the grime and fungus is on the diopter / or ocular as Simon put it which is probably what it is called 🙂 The mask I removed of course easily, but the split ring seems to be very stuck there, do you have any recommendations of how to remove it? And as you say once you do that, you'll need a micro suction to pull that optic out of the barrel - if I manage to do this, is there a recommended solution to clean the inside with? Thanks ahead and thanks to all that replied.
  3. Hi guys, just picked up a rex4, looks to be running fine but the viewfinder diopter piece at the front appears to have some dirt / spider fungus on the inside of it, cleaned both ends of the glass. Does anyone have any idea if I can open this up further as there are no screws, there is a small metal clamp on one side it looks like, but it looks to be like either permetntly on or stuck on there, (don't want to damage it) Or if I can source a replacement from anyone? Was thinking of dunking the whole thing into 99% iso prop alcohol or something, but I didn't want to ruin any coatings or leave smears behind that I couldn't get to to remove. Any advise from you guys here would be amazing. Also any idea if this is regular 16 or s16? I had a EBM before that came s16, sold it can't remember how the gate looked vs this one. lewis
  4. Thank you both for your detailed replies much clearer now and yes I was used to the full frame as I came from a dslr background until I saw the magic of film and now there’s no going back to digital haha. 🙂
  5. So either im being a total idiot, I was under the impression that 16mm film optics was around a 2x crop factor in 35 equivalent when calculating FOV? But ive seen some people say that its a 3.40x crop? Was looking at lenses and calculating them always as 2x crop, eg 15-50 would be a FOV around 30-100mm for example? But then someone said on a post I saw that this Angenuix 17-68mm lens I was looking at was around a 48mm on 35? Which is around a 2.8x? Very confused here as ive thought It was 2x for a long time..
  6. Or of course some C mount Angenuix is out there, some nice small ish zooms like the 17-68mm f2.2 although a little pricey. Not sure if they have corrected optics so they can be used with no focus issues with the RX models. Any views welcome.
  7. Or alternatively if anyone could recommend a good native bayonet mount small ish lens, effective 35mm focal length around 30/35mm would be good. Saw a guy using a bolex bayonet mount to cmount adapter. then a cmount to canon fd mount adapter by viltrox on his SBM, to use some FD glass which I have so that's a option also.
  8. Hi guys just wondering if there's any issues with breathing or achieving sharp IQ, The bayonet mount optics options are great but very travel unfriendly, looking to grab a few Kern/Switars or Scheider primes in C mount RX use glass to use with a EBM or similar, but with a c mount adapter to keep size down, mainly for shooting abroad etc, the POE 16-100mm is lovely but its huge and heavy so looking for some smaller optics to use. Just wondering if there's any focal plane issues as I believe the C mount Bayonet adapter gets the lens on the same focal plane as the bayonet would be sitting? Just by looking not technically. Any recommendations that won't blow the bank account up? Thanks ahead
  9. Price is flexible - listed on eBay for £4,4. Happy to negotiate on price as need a relatively quick sale.
  10. Up for sale is my amazing SUPER 16 Converted Bolex EBM. Photos below 🙂 https://imgur.com/a/hWuHiNu Reluctant sale but she isn’t getting enough use to keep her around, so off to a new home she goes. She is running currently on D tap power, so you can easily just stick a v mount on the plate on the rear and off she goes, will run for years on 1 battery. You can put the the original Bolex grip system with the propitiatory Bolex battery, but its rare and expensive and a old system to be honest. Was just serviced by Les Bosher 2 days ago. Body is in Mint Condition - Viewfinder is nice and bright as you can see. Lens is clear of any fungus, scratches or marks on both ends of the optics. Im selling it with all you can see in the photos which is as follows, Bolex EBM Body Kern Vario Switar F1.9 16-100mm (insanely great lens) Lens Hood 400ft Drum Mag Power cable for 400ft mag 400ft Mag rollers Kern Lens Cable Original Bolex Silver Case Pelican Case Rig Bits: ARRI Rosette Baseplate ARRI Rosete wooden handle from SmallRig 15mm Rods Mini V Mount Plate Any questions just ask Based in the Uk - London. £4400 ONO.
  11. I have a Super 16 Bolex EBM with 16-100mm 1.9 Ive just put up for sale if that's of interest?
  12. Shot a bunch of content in Mexico for a music video, on the first night several of the clips where shot in 50p, was meant to be 60, to drop them into a 24p timeline alongside my 24p super 8 footage. is there any way to convert the 50p footage to 24p so I can keep the lip sync in the performance shots in time? conforming the 50 to 24 just leads to it being slowed down, which then I can't use. any ideas?
