  1. looking for a list (and recommendations) for zoom lenses with finder attachments for non-reflex bolexes. thanks.
  2. I've just recently inherited an older non-reflex Bolex H16. Hasn't been used in quite some time, I'm sure. It seems to be complete and in quite good shape. I'll check it later on but the serial number is in the 70,000s. It came with 3 lenses that seem to match the included F25 labeled viewfinder. The glass on them looks good and the diaphragms all work well but they were essentially focus-frozen. I did get them to focus by working them a lot but they are really tight. Old grease I am sure. 2 are Wollensaks and one is a Berthiot. I don't recall which is which but they are 15, 25 and 75mm. It also came with a decent condition original case, the manual, a small hand crank, a chrome gadget that I think is for a cable release based on my research and a case of "filters" which are nothing more than thin metal slides with not a filter in sight. I'm guessing maybe they were gels that are long gone. I also have two caps for the lens cavities. It had an old spool of film in it, so I practiced loading it up based on some YouTube videos and the manual. Operation seems pretty good. At 24fps I'm getting about 32-33 seconds of runtime and the speed control dial works. While doing this I discovered that it has the dual sprockets and that film of that type seems unavailable. I've been in touch with ProCam and they can convert it pretty cheaply to use single perf film. Single frame and T function also looks to be working fine. Now the first couple questions. My camera has some sort of plastic counter box attachment stuck to the outside of it in the upper right corner of the side with all the controls. Seems to be a frame counter but it's not as indicated in the manual. Would this have been an option added later or something added at the factory? It has a shaft sticking out of it with a roll pin through it that I assume is for the little crank. The camera has the footage counter in the usual place near the back of the right side but it doesn't work. Opening the door doesn't zero it, and it never moves when the camera runs. Guessing this is not something I can/should try to fix myself? On a related note, what resets that counter? Is it the tall plunger at the back of the film chamber? That depresses freely but otherwise does nothing. I've been shooting film for still photography a while but this is my first movie camera. If I can get everything all sorted out, I'm looking forward to fiddling with it a bit. Thanks!
