Bolex H16 REX 5 Reflex 16mm Cine Camera w/ Kern Vario-Switar 16-100mm f1.9, SERVICED.

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Condition: 9.0

An absolutely stunning piece of kit, the Bolex H16 Reflex 16mm Camera, this example has been lovingly serviced by Leslie Bosher, known for his quality work (service receipt will be included on sale). Serial number dates the camera to 1973, so it's a later production H16 REX 5.

Camera has had a full service including new shutter, realigned filter mech, lens has been serviced and focuses smoothly and to top it all off a new eyecup has been fitted!.

Camera is fully operational and a joy to use, FPS select well, camera winds on smoothly and fires consistently (please be aware that dry firing these above the cap of 18fps can damage the internals). Frame counter working, single shot working, finder clear and easy to focus with.

Lens works fully manually including focus, zoom & manual selection, glass is clear and free from fungus, front an rear elements are very clean, there is some very minor hazing on one of the middle elements, we have shot some test footage with this which will be uploaded to our socials soon!

Given the specialist nature of the equipment, please contact us before purchase if unsure about operation. 

Generic aluminium case, plastic hood, spare filters & a complimentary 10mm Angenieux lens (this has some coating marks on the front).
