Hello
Are there any vintage camera enthusiasts out there with knowledge of Bolex cameras?
If so, I would like some help identifying the model of a camera. If I get any responses to my thread I’ll post back with more.

Thanks

Bolex made 16mm movie cameras, it would have been helpful to people if you had mentioned this in your post. Have you tried a simple google search?

Yes, I am aware of this site

I had an 8 m.m. cine, think it was the C8,many years ago. The Bolex site seems pretty comprehensive.

It would be useful if you posted details of your camera.

Ok, now I know there are some Bolex experts about I will continue…

Details: Bolex Paillard Super x Hypan Superpan serial number 617967

From the S/N *I think* I have narrowed it down to possibly a B8, B-8VS or C8

Would I be correct?

I don't recognise the name "Super x Hypan Superpan". All I can add is that mine was a single lens camera. As I said. I think it was the C8. The others had a rotating turret carrying two lenses. I bought mine about 1953 to 1955 or thereabouts. Long gone now. Only problem I had with it was that when the motor ran down, it would stop with the shutter open. Possibly a model defect?

I have not seen the camera myself and I have little knowledge in the area other than that acquired from the excellent web site already mentioned.
I am researching the info for a friend who perhaps wishes to sell. I believe it was purchased in the late 1950s.
I have tried to find references to Super x Hypan...etc but I feel I am out of my depth.
I am awaiting my forum activation to said site to see if anyone on there can help. in the meantime I thought I would try here.

Incidentally, Weskit, from my travels around the internet researching these cameras you could very well get replacement part(s) (ebay) or repairs for your defective motor but I am sure you will know more of this area than I.

Thank you for your post. I did not think it was a H16 simply because I have been informed that it took 8mm, from my investigation the H16 S/N's are different and it appears to be a much larger camera than the one described to me. But I could be wrong on all counts.

click here seems to have your serial number but the prices do not look encouraging.
