£225.00

Paillard Bolex P3 8mm Movie Camera SOM Berthiot Pan-Cinor Zoom Lens & Case
 
Classic 8mm Camera dating from 1963 with highly polished duraluminium body, covered in genuine Morocco leather. Metal parts are chrome-plated.
 
Specification of the P3:
 
  • Constant speed, spring motor mechanism; governor controlled. Generous winding key, attached to the camera, folds back against its side when not in use. Spring cannot be over-wound.
  • SOM Berthiot Pan Cinor 8-40mm f/1.9 zoom lens with power-zoom control (powered by two batteries). The P3 Zoom reflex used the same zoom lens as the earlier Bolex P1 but offers a power zoom feature; two levers are located on the side of the lens for zooming in and out. 
  • Reflex viewfinder with built-in coincident image rangefinder; Adjustable diopter for eyesight correction.
  • Variable Speed: 12, 16, 18, 24, 32, 48 and 64 frames per second.
  • Adjustable dial changes the shutter opening from 0-165 degrees to allow for shortened exposure times and fades.
 
Condition: Cosmetically it is in excellent condition for it’s age. It is a used camera so there are some very minor marks from previous use. Runs well and all controls are working.
 
Exposure Meter and Power-Zoom tested and working (need batteries). Manual zoom working along with aperture control and focus ring.
 
Includes purpose made Hand-Grip and Branded Spare Reel.
 
Also includes a lens cap and all in the original hard protective leather case with shoulder strap.
 
This is a lovely camera well cared for, fully working, ideal for the Bolex collector. 
 
The brown leather branded case is also immaculate with short hand strap and shoulder strap extension with hardly a mark from use.
 
The camera can be kept in the case with either the grip attached or detached (see last two pictures).
 
You will not find a better example of this popular movie camera.
