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.
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.
