I recently picked up a Bolex EBM that a friend had had sitting in storage for a few decades. All the pieces seem to be together and carefully stored and kept (pictured below). The 2 cell batteries I have seem to go with the power grip. The issue is I don’t know which end is positive and which is negative and I’ve heard using the wrong end can blow the fuse. I’m wondering how to best test the camera’s electronics with the equipment I have? There is a charger and multiple power sources but I’m unsure of how to safely use and test any of it. As mentioned, the equipment has supposedly been well maintained and used very lightly. I’m unsure, however, if deterioration may have occurred with time and if I should invest in repairs and new parts. Anyone have any insights? Any help would be immensely appreciated
I have decided to enter the realm of film. I am a horticulturist/landscaper and I will be shooting plants and landscapes (no further than a 'street scene') SO, I would like: single frame/cable release cabability Electronic Stellar resolution and durability (In case it falls off a mini tripod when shooting a rock or leaf- I don't want the camera to shatter into a million pieces. Also I live in wyoming and the wind blows something fierce so it can't be a dust magnet) approx 100.00 for a camera lenses and lens caps I decided against 8mm because the 11sec/roll of film would drive me nuts it seems that for: resolution and detail I would want a 16mm for portability I would want an 8mm What i've read so far recommend Bolex and Canon Any thoughts? Thanbks
