Bolex Paillard C8SL Double 8mm Camera

£69.95

Product information

OVERALL DIMENSIONS: 5″ x 3 1/2″ x 2″

WEIGHT: Approximately 28 oz.

OUTER CASE: Highly polished duraluminium body, covered in genuine Morocco leather. Metal parts are chrome-plated.

FILM CAPACITY: 25ft daylight loading spools of double run 8mm film. When a roll runs through the camera, only half the width of film is exposed. The spool is then reversed and run through again, exposing the other half. When processed, film is split and spliced together giving 50′ for projection. Projection time at 16 fps for 25′ roll is 4 minutes.

THREADING: manual, with no loop forming; with the pressure pad opened the film is simply placed over a guide roller, threaded behind the gate, over the bottom guide roller and onto the takeup spool.

MOTOR: Constant speed, spring motor mechanism; governor controlled. Generous winding key, attached to the camera, folds back against its side when not in use. Spring cannot be over-wound.

LENS MOUNT: Accommodates one standard D mount lens.

VIEWFINDER: optical type; engraved markings show field of view for wide, standard and telephoto lenses. Accessory prism attachments allow for filming with 5.5mm lenses, and for parallax correction while filming at close distances.

SINGLE SPEED: Standard 18 frames per second.

RELEASE BUTTON: continuous exposures can be made by a sliding release lever or cable release. The lever can be locked to prevent accidental exposures, or set for continuous hands-free filming.

SHUTTER: 165 degree disc shutter gives an exposure time of 1/43rd second at 18fps.

FOOTAGE COUNTER: Precise reading of exposed film footage. Audible end-of-film signal. Resets to zero upon reloading.

SINGLE FRAME: A cable release socket allows the user to expose single frames for filming animation, titles, etc.

EXPOSURE METER: A photoelectric cell measures light through the lens. Two needle indicators in the viewfinder are then aligned by adjusting the diaphragm on your lens, resulting in proper exposure.

TRIPOD SOCKET: 1/4″ thread

The camera is in great condition! Ben was super helpful with finding the best Bolex as a gift for my partner and was so patient with my questions! I highly recommend this store and will definitely continue ordering from them in the future.

I can’t thank you enough for your website and the service you provide, I went through three super 8 cameras in this project, including one sold as ‘checked, repaired, CLA’d’, and the one I purchased from you was the only one that worked, and it worked flawlessly! I recommend cameracrate.com to everyone that asks me about the film, absolute mvp!

I hadn't noticed that the seller was in the UK until after the purchase, so when it showed up on my doorstep just a couple days later, I was floored. Great service, great descriptions, and fantastic packaging for international shipments.

Ben was so helpful in both picking a camera that suited me and in shipping when things got delayed! I will for sure be one to recommend this shop and come here again for more gear in the future. I am so excited about my purchase and it looks great!!

Camera was packaged so so well, it probably could’ve been chucked out a car and it wouldn’t have had any damage. Delivery was extremely quick and it looks in great condition. Seller was excellent and would recommend buying from.

Amazing customer service. Bought for a Christmas present. The seller made sure to message me all information about the camera in case I didn’t read the description. Also let me know when the camera was going to be dispatched. Would definitely buy from this shop again. Amazing experience

The seller has been to a good deal of trouble to ensure a safe delivery to the customer. This was a delicate item and all associated parts were individually packed in the container. Received with appreciation.
