Hey there. I'm looking for a tested and working eyemo. Will be my first time shooting 35mm but it's something I need to scratch off the bucket list. I don't have a huge budget but I want the experience. I'm also not sure what models there are out there so any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Here's my wind-up Eyemo that we talked about (happened to be sitting on my desk as I read your post). Love that is was built in the 40's and can make images rivaling the latest & greatest digital cameras...except perhaps in sharpness due to the ancient but full-of-character lens.

 

This camera shot this (Double X, Spirit Transfer):

 

 

Another motorized Eyemo with Nikon mount lenses shot this on 50D (ending has some nice faces):

There’s a most beautiful 71-C from between 1932 and 1937 on ebay. $2,500

As much as I would love to purchase the one on eBay, unfortunately it's a little bit out of my budget but I'm definitely looking for something with an upgraded lens.
Thank you for your replies gentlemen.

I don't know if he's still in business, but there's a Cineflex package on this site for $1300. Sort of a knock-off of the Arri 2B.

Prices have really changed. I bought two crystal mod Eyemo's on eBay about 12 years ago for $600. I think my wind-up one was $350.

It seems like the Eyemos have gone up, but other (larger) cameras - Arri's, Mitchells - have come down in price. The Clairmont Camera auction had about 10 Eyemos that were going for a song, and similarly I think they fetched comparably high prices next to the Arri's & Fries Mitchells that were being sold.

I have two electronic Eyemo's that I'll be selling. One of them is good, has a Nikon mount and works fine. The other does work, but the counter is fishy and doesn't have a lens mount. I'd be willing to sell both and some spares for pretty cheap if you had interest.

Hi
Look at this nice one, offered on eBay.
By the way, I can do a complete service on the Eyemo.
Doesnt matter in which condition it is, it will work perfect after my overhaul.
I can put a M42 lens mount adapter on it too

All the best

Stefan

P.S the Eyemo is a perfect choice. I have 20 of it ...

An Eyemo with a Nikon mount would be ideal if anyone has one for sale. I would like something like an Arri but I am not sure I can afford it.
Thanks.
