Paillard Bolex B8LA Vintage 8mm Movie Film Camera With Yvar f1.9/13mm Lens
This improved version of the B-8L was introduced in 1961. It featured the addition of a film rewind slot, a more sensitive meter and a built in prism for focal length lenses of 5.5mm.
Other cosmetic changes: A logo plate with the camera name “B8L” appears on the bottom front of the camera; “Bolex” is inscribed on the top-front of the light meter housing; and a film index calculator dial was added to the film door.
