Paillard Bolex H16 Vintage 16mm Movie Camera Body
Original H16 from 1935.
Duraluminium body, covered in genuine Morocco leather. Metal parts are chrome-plated.
Takes 100ft (30m) and 50ft (15m) daylight loading spools of 16mm film.
Rotating turret accommodates three interchangeable C mount lenses.
Capable of speeds 8, 16, 24, 32 and 64 frames per second with the ability to change speeds while the camera is running.
190 degree disc shutter, operates at 118/1000 of an inch from emulsion side of film with an exposure rate of 1/30 second at 16 fps.
Counter adds and subtracts accurately in forward or reverse motion and automatically returns to zero when film is reloaded into the camera.
Time lapse and animation is possible by using the side release button. Clutch disengages spring motor and permits forward movement and backwind without running down the spring; allows for dissolves and superimposition.
Good general condition with all dials and levers appearing to be working as they should.
No damage, only wear to some of the black paintwork, some marks to the leather, minor tarnishing to some metalwork.
