  1. Hey guys! My Kipon FD to C mount Adapter doesn't allow my FD lenses to focus to infinity. I can close focus just fine. The adapter is screwed on all the way. At least it won't let me screw it on anymore. This is all judging from the viewfinder. I haven't shot any tests with the lens adapter combo. I was hoping to get away with spending $40 on this Kipon adapter I purchased from adorama, instead of the $200 one that Les quoted for his custom machine made one. http://www.lesbosher.co.uk Does anyone ever use FD lenses with their Bolex cameras anymore? Not much comes up on google or the forum search. Hard to find recent examples too. The one example of the Bolex EBM Super 16 shot with FD lenses by Elliot Rudman is incredible but almost a decade old now. I'm looking for recent examples and recent adapters that you guys are using that work. I do know Elliot got his custom made from Les. But honestly, I rather just buy the kern switar lenses instead of using FD lenses with a $200 adapter especially if they are better quality anyway. Plus I only have 2 FD lenses for my AE-1 and nothing I'm dead set on using. I just thought it would be an easy way to have more options with lenses but I'm already running into an issue. The adapter does allow for my FD lenses aperture blade to move freely without any mod so that is a plus. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -Ryan
  2. Hello all. I'm looking for advice on how to find replacement parts for a Bolex Rex 4. I recently bought an underutilized kit and have been cleaning it up and trying to get it running again. It's in fairly decent shape, but I discovered that the screw for adjusting the position of the lower loop former is missing. I know it'd be best to send the camera to a technician for a proper overhaul, but my budget is low and it would be expensive relative to the cost of the kit. It'd be a shame to end up not using it because of something so small. A side note to the contributors here: I've been a lurker on this forum for awhile and have learned a lot reading through old threads. Thanks for that - and for any input you may have on this topic.
