Add To Cart

Paillard-Bolex B8 8mm cine camera, made in the Switzerland in 1953. The B8 takes double-run 8mm film; when a roll of film is run through the camera, half the width of film is exposed, the spool is then reversed and the other half is exposed. For processing the film is split and spliced together which results in double the amount for projection. The camera has a clockwork-driven motor that runs at 12, 16, 18, 24, 32, 48 and 64 frames per second: it can also be run a frame at a time. (Courtesy of collection.sciencemuseum.org.) Comes with the standard Yvar 1:1,9 f13mm, and a Yvar 1:2,8 f36mm which is not one of the standard lenses originally sold with the camera. Camera measures 5 inches tall, by 5 inches deep with lens, and 2 inches wide. Everything on the camera works, all buttons, switches, levers, and dials are functional. Camera is untested.
