  6. So I'm pretty new to 16mm stuff, I've gradually been making the switch from digital. It's been pretty fun. Right now I'm using a Bolex as my A-Cam and two old Keystones as my crash cams. Yeah, I'm working on filling the gap between those two, but that's not the point. One thing that I've given up since making the switch was my anamorphic lenses. I love them to pieces, they're just awesome. However, I've had trouble finding a conclusive solution for a c mount anamorphic lens. It's kind of frustrating, and I was wondering what my options realistically are. I've heard several different ideas on this forum, one of which is using projector lenses. I've never really had to do that, so would that be a good option? I don't know that I've encountered much projection glass well-suited for shooting, but maybe I just haven't seen enough. I would really like to stay away from anamorphic adapters. I guess if that's the best option then I can use them, but I've always stuck to the real thing. Last thing, cost is a big factor here. I'm a big fan of quality glass, but I don't use these cameras enough to drop a lot of money on one lens. So if that means I should just get a lens adapter and use some cheap anamorphic glass for a different mount, I can do that. I just want to know what my options are for an adapter-less setup, if that's even possible. Thanks much!

  9. Hello everybody ! I've been looking around for some times in this forum, and recent topics about new cameras, either film or digital, with a super 8 frame size, gave me an idea. As those new cameras relaunched the interest in Super-8 designed lenses, I thought it would be cool to have some kind of exhaustive list of all interchangeable lenses manufactured for Super 8. Just to be perfectly accurate, I'm only interested here on legacy lenses that were marketed specifically for Super 8 cameras, CCTV and 16mm lenses are out of scope. Here's what I managed to find, please tell me if some are inaccurate or other are missing. Actually, I found this list raises a lot of questions, with a lot of mysterious, extremely rare lenses on which there's too few information. So let's try to make this list together the more accurate possible if you please ! Mounts are given following this nomenclature : C : C thread mount M : Leica M bayonet mount M42 : Praktica thread mount P : Pentaflex 8 mount (1) Angénieux Paris - Zoom 1.9/8-64 C - Zoom 1.2/6-80 C - Zoom 1.4/6-90 C - Macro 1.4/15-90 C (2) Beaulieu - Zoom Macro 1.4/6.9-55 C (3) Fuji Photo Film Co. - Fujinon MA-Z EBC 1.8/7.5-75 C - Fujinon SW EBC 1.8/5.5 C Isco Göttingen - Iscorama 1.8/10 C (4) Schneider Kreuznach - Variogon 1.8/8-40 C - Variogon 1.8/7-56 C - Optivaron 1.8/6-66 C/M - Macro Cinegon 1.8/10 M - Variogon 1.8/6-180 C (5) - Optivaron 1.4/8-50 C - Optivaron 1.4/6-70 C Shinsei Optical - Shinkor Zoom 1.8/6.5-65 M42 (6) Carl Zeiss Jena - Pentovar 2/8-32 P - Flektogon 2/5.5 P - Flektogon 2/12.5 P - Biotar 2/25 P - Sonnar 2.8/40 P Notes : 1. Don't know if this mount can be adapted to C. 2. Seems from the focal range like a 16mm lens, but the large aperture seems to say otherwise. Never seen one of those. 3. Made in Japan, but actual manufacturer is unknown. Could it be Bell & Howell/Mamiya ? Kowa ? 4. Actually an assembly of a Schneider Cinegon and an Isco anamorphic adapter. 5. Prototype, don't think it reached production. 6. Don't know if this lens fits standard M42 to C adapters since its rear lens protrude inside the mount in a specific way. The Kowa 1.8/12.5-75 was marketed with some Pathé DS8 cameras but is actually designed for 16mm. I found no information concerning lenses marketed with specials cameras like the Mekel or the VIC. Seems likely they were sold body only. All in all, It seems there's never been more than 20 distinct lenses types marketed for Super 8 (of only 7 brands), with about a third being easily findable. This contrasts with the hundreds of lenses made for 16mm. Looking this way, a Super-8 sized digital sensor doesn't seem really pertinent as the park of lenses available is very limited, mostly hard to obtain, and quality wise with no real advantages over its big sister other than big zoom ranges of compact size, since almost no primes were made. But now, should we include too regular 8 lenses ? Some regular 8 cameras like the Beaulieu MR8 had C-mount lenses, but it is not known, at least by my little knowledge, if they would cover Super 8. Some Bolex H-8 REX series has successfully been converted to DS-8 but their RX-type lenses are designed to only work with their matching cameras. Still it helps leading to think that regular 8 lenses can cover Super-8. Another example of successful conversion is the factory made Pentaflex DS8. The Ercsam Camex cameras, also in regular 8, had their own kind of mount which I don't know if they're adaptable to C. All other 8mm cameras with interchangeable lenses have a D-mount, with a too short focal flange to be adapted. In another way, I don't think the extremely few Arri ST modified for DS8 had special 8mm lenses made for them, it seems more likely they just had classic 16mm lenses. Now, I'm calling for your knowledge, hoping to discover some lenses I didn't see ! Best regards, Tom
  10. Hello all, I've recently acquired a Bolex h16 non-reflex camera to try shooting a bit of film. I'm new to it. The camera serial # is 88806 and according to the bolex collector website this is a camera from 1936-1937. It does not have the octometer for parallax correction or top viewfinder cup. All I have is the camera itself with no extras. My hope is to use a m42 to c-mount adapter on the camera so I could use my pentax still photo lenses, but I don't know how this would work on this type of camera or if it is even possible. I'm trying to figure out: - If I would be able to focus correctly using the pentax lenses and adapter by looking through the top viewfinder. - How the octometer works. How do you compose shots using different focal lengths with this system and would it be possible using the m42 lenses? Thanks, Austin
