Hello.
 
I have a Bolex EBM and I really wanna convert it to super 16.
There are no services around that could provide such conversion and sending the camera to the US would be too expensive.
I don't care much about the viewfinder conversion, the main point for me is the S16 image. So I'm trying to do the conversion myself.
Before I only had experience with K3, although it's a different camera, I can see a few similarities.
 
I understand that EBM and Rex are different cameras, but that's the only thing I could find online.
 
I started with unscrewing the front plate, I took it off and then I stuck.
Something's not letting the front, but I can't figure out what exactly.
 
Can anyone please help me with that? What should I do next?
 
Thank you.

Try removing the viewfinder tube.

Hi Dom.

 

Thank you so much for your advice, it worked.

 

Took some time to get a proper screwdriver (mine was to thick for the tube), tried it today and took the front plate off in the end.

 

Thanks!
