  1. I recently purchased a Kern Switar 10mm f1.4 lens, which appears to be in good condition, for use on my Bolex EBM with a c mount adapter. However, when mounting this lens I encountered a strange problem where it would only focus at extremely close distances and leaves the rest out of focus. Seems like this lens is not in such great shape after all but wondering if anyone knows a fix? Thanks for any help!
  2. Hi fellow cinematographers, I'm looking for the (somewhat hard to find) 26mm Kern Switar Preset lens in the final black version with multicoated glass. I need the optics to be in a good shape but body doesn't matter that much. I desperately need to complete my lens set. I'm looking for anyone that has this lens but I'd prefer to buy from someone in Europe/EU (that would be perfect!) or the UK. But I'm open to discussing importing it from US as well. Please message me here on the forums so we can eventually discuss the sale in more detail. Thank you very much for any leads on this! Marek
  3. For sale is a Kern Vario Switar 16-100mm f/1.9 POE C-Mount zoom lens for Bolex H16 RX cameras. the lens is in excellent optical, cosmetic, and working condition. Zoom, focus, and aperture are smooth and work great. note, THIS LENS IS RX so it is made to work with Bolex reflex cameras only. I am asking $450 + shipping for the lens. I am only shipping within the US and will only accept PayPal. I can send photos upon request. If interested, please send me a DM. best, Derick
  4. Hey guys! I was hoping if any of you kind souls are willing to assist me on this! There's a huge lack of support over here in Singapore so I'm venturing out into the unknown! So I'm currently building a set of 16mm Kern Switars! I have my own set of Bolex H16 Rex 4. From what I understand, I am able to convert the sensor for the H16 Rex 4 from a 16mm sensor size to a Super 16mm sensor size. I'd love to do that! However, may I check if anyone knows this? Will these lenses cover the Super 16mm format? KERN SWITAR RX Primes 10mm H16RX F1.6 KERN SWITAR RX Primes 16mm H16RX F1.8 KERN MACRO-SWITAR RX Primes 26mm H16RX F1.1 KERN MACRO-SWITAR RX Primes 50mm H16RX F1.4 KERN MACRO-SWITAR RX Primes 75mm H16RX F1.9 I'm also on the hunt for a Kern Macro 50mm F1.4 H16RX. So please reach out to me if you're keen on selling ? Really do appreciate it!
  5. On the Switar 10mm AR F1.6, how do you access the helicoil to re-lube it? I have a pretty clean copy but the focus is pretty much seized, I tried removing the rear most element but that got me nowhere near the helicoil. Any advice would be appreciated.
  6. I'm looking to purchase a Kern Switar 5.5mm Wide Angle Aspheron for Bolex. Please shoot me a PM or email (jordan AT canopyfilms.com) if you've got one ?

  12. I found a super cheap switar lens on eBay. It's a 16mm lens. Below is a link. My question is.... Would this be relatively a "normal" lens for a bolex? I would rather get a ten mm, but don't want to pay 200.00+ for one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kern-Paillard-Switar-AR-f1-8-16mm-C-Mount-Camera-Lens-No-Reserve-/371264300473?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item567113a5b9
  13. Does anyone have any experience with this lens? Either on the bolex or otherwise? I believe it is C-mount, and I was hoping to maybe pick one up to test out on a pocket cam. Just wondering if anyone has any positive or negative experiences adapting it to a M43 mount.
