Paillard Bolex Kern Yvar f2.8 36mm D-Mount Lens For 8mm Film Cameras
Kern Yvar 36mm f/2.8 Visifocus (YVITA). Telephoto lens with a Visifocus DOF scale.
In 1950, Kern-Paillard introduced a new line of lenses with a unique depth of field scale, termed “Visifocus”. The Visifocus system consisted of a curved scale, indicated by a series of orange colored dots that appeared or disappeared when the diaphragm scale was stopped up or down. The dots provided a visual reference of the depth of field for different focus settings at each f-stop.
A D-mount lens that will fit many 8mm movie cameras.
The focus and aperture rings are easy and smooth.
Marked ‘Kern-Paillard Switzerland’.
In lovely condition for its age. Minor marks from use.
Clean and clear with a small amount of dust as expected for a lens of this age.
