Bolex-Paillard underwater housing

Recommended Posts



Nice Bolex Paillard underwater housing, not beaten up like so many.  Kit includes original case, rangefinder, blue filter, two wrenches, and some sort of mount (light meter?  Light? -- see photo), a Bolex H16 film camera, and Angenieux 10 mm retrofocus lens.

I have never used this housing or camera, but the camera winds up and runs.  The return spring on the M-STOP-P switch seems a little weak, but the camera does run.  There is no carry handle on the case.  I'll leave it to the buyer whether to find an original handle, or just get 'a handle' for functionality.  The blue filter has some scratches on it, but I suspect these would not be a factor underwater.
