Product details

Paillard Bolex H16 Reflex 16mm Cine Film Camera & 3 Lenses, Fully Working S82791
In absolutely stunning condition, this fully working camera is a complete set
with a ton of accessories included! This is one of the very earliest reflex
models, so early that the lenses are marked DV instead of RX – Bolex produced
the first batch as DV (Direct View) before deciding to change the name to RX.
This clearly confused the original owner who wrote to Bolex, receiving this
explanation (letters included, see pics).The following is included:
* Paillard Bolex H16 Reflex camera
* Switar DV/RX 16mm f/1.8 AR C mount Lens
* Pizar DV/RX 25mm f/1.5 AR C mount Lens
* Switar DV/RX 50mm f/1.4 AR C mount Lens
* 3 x lens caps (both ends)
* 3 x lens hood
* 2 x lens cases
* Original hard leather case
* Handgrip
* Remote shutter cable
* 3 x back caps for camera
* Pull focus
* Original manuals
* Letter from bolex
* Warranty cards for all lenses and the camera
* 5 x filter holders and case
* Eye Level focus viewfinder
* 6 x Kodak Wratten Gelatin Filters (unused, not pictured)
* Manual rewind handle
