A selection of Bolex gear. I'm flexible on the prices, so feel free to send reasonable offers or I'm looking to trade for Nikon manual gear.

Bolex D8L camera, with pistol grip and original leather case. Lenses and finder and bright and clean as is the body of the camera. Has three lenses in a turret, which have original screw on caps.

1. Schneider Kreuznach Xenar f2.8 38mm (marked "fur bolex")
2. Schneider Kreuznach Xenoplan f1.9 13mm (marked "fur bolex")
3. Schneider Kreuznach Cinegon f1.9 6.5mm

I'm asking $350, which is a good price considering the lenses alone are worth that. If you just want the lenses, ask and we can discuss prices.

Bolex Octameter for the H8 (with settings for various lens lengths in one finder that attaches to the side of a bolex camera) $50
Bolex H8 side door (with box) $25
Bolex cable release with adapter $20
Bolex H8 metal eyecups $5
Bolex blue violet filter in original case $7

Bolex H8 rex camera ( beautiful shape, in case with original metal caps on lens mounts and tags, with manuals) Comes with the following c mount lenses. All together $620

Kern 36mm f 1.4 Macro Switar H8 Rex
Kern 5.5mmm f 1.6 Switar H8 Rex
Kern 12.5mm f 1.3 Macro Switar H8 Rex

If you're a bolex collector, I also have numerous catalogs, brochures, manuals and price lists in english and german from Bolex. $2-$10

Starr Platar c mount lens in orginal case. Great shape. f 1.9 6mm. $25

Kodak Universal Presstape Splicer (mint in box) for 8mm, Super 8, 16mm film. $20

Paypal or money order preferred. Shipping is extra. Thanks!

Boy oh boy, I would frigging love to have that H8REX with that lens set.

it's a nice set....the lenses all are in little cardboard tube cases, and have front and back screw on caps....look to have never been used much. They're a little tight on the focus rings, but nothing a little use and lube wouldn't take care of I think. Also, it's a H8 Rex 3, so it can still be converted for use today.

You got any pictures of the Starr Platar? I take it it's made for an 8mm camera and not 16mm, right? I just got a Beaulieu 4008 and I'd love a wide angle prime to use for a movie project.

Rest is still available!

Will also trade for Nikon gear....always looking for fast primes like the 35mm 1.4, 24mm 2, 28mm 2, 50mm 1.2, 55mm 1.2 , 58mm 1.2, 85mm 1.4 105mm 1.8, 135mm 2, etc...just ask!
