The Bolex H-16 Rex and H-16 SBM cameras are 16MM reflex cameras. It is an extremely versatile, portable, dependable, well built camera. The optical system permits through-the-lens viewing at all times. The self-threading allows easy loading of daylight spools. Camera features include single-frame filming, extended exposure, slow motion, backwind and a 133 ̊-145 ̊ angle variable shutter. Media Loan’s Advanced Production Services (APS) has a variety of Bolex H-16 cameras manufactured between 1960 and 1976. Although all have similar features, the controls vary slightly. Also available for use with the Bolex cameras are zoom lenses, prime lenses, and an intervalometer as well as other accessories. Although the Bolex is a very well built and dependable camera, care must be taken when using a Bolex checked out from APS as they are expensive and difficult to replace.

Vario Switar 86EE (18mm-86mm f/2.5)
This lens was introduced in 1964, as the first "Electric Eye" 16mm zoom lens. It was designed specifically for H-16 reflex cameras and featured a fully automatic diaphragm control with a cadmium sulphide photo resistor which was sensitive to film ratings from 10-400 ASA. The exposure meter was powered by one (1) PX-13 1.35v mercury cell battery. Minimum aperture of f/16. Weight: 2 lbs, 4 oz. Accepts Series VIII filters.
There is a spot inside the lens we couldn't clean from the inside.

  • Die gelieferte Uhr ist schadhaft. Das Glas löst sich, die Uhr läßt sich nicht stellen.
