Bolex Anamorphot Lens 16/32/1.5x This hard-to-find BOLEX MUELLER 16/32/1.5x Anamorphic lens with holder for H16 Bolex cameras is in nice condition...I don't think it was used very much. Cosmetically it looks great, with no “brassing” to the black parts. The glass is clean, the front element has a small scratch, maybe 1/4” long, off toward one side. The rear element has some very slight fogging around the edges Lens serial number is 768491 The leather case is in fair to good condition, with a bit of wear inside but looking nice outside. The parallax compensating viewfinder seems to function as it should, but could benefit from some cleaning. The chrome plated pin at the front mount has a bit of rust and chrome loss. This set includes the lens and mounting hardware, front lens cap, leather case, and viewfinder, as shown. Everything will be securely packaged, padded and double boxed for shipment. I will ship within the USA only. I do not claim to be an expert on photographic equipment. Although I have described this lens as accurately as I can, it is nonetheless a used item, and I must sell it As Is, with no returns. $1000.00. I can take PayPal, but I prefer Postal Money Order. If you are local to the Dallas, TX area we can meet in person (cash.) If you are seriously interested, contact me with your zip code and I'll determine the shipping charges and we'll take it from there. Thanks, Henry www.auldooly.com
I came across this teaser for a documentary by Alexandre Favre called Bolex: The Last Employee and thought the readers of this forum might appreciate it. https://vimeo.com/150185992 The contemporary footage was shot using a Bolex modified for super 16, and the audio was recorded on a Nagra. The historical footage and commentary is interesting. Particularly the bit about small camera assembly lines being staffed by women, who were presumed to be more agile than men. The level of precision and craftsmanship that went into these machines is pretty inspiring. I'm looking forward to seeing the full length documentary when it's released.
