Hey guys, i was just wondering if i'd be able to use my Eclair (cameflex) mount lenses on a 16mm bolex.

I'm guessing i'd need some sort of C-mount to Eclair-mount adapter?


thanks-

That is what you would need but I've never seen one of those anywhere.
It would have to be custom-made ($$$$$).
You could always have the lens's mount permanently changed to a C-mount.

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

Hi Nicolas,

They do exist, as Eclair made them for the NPR (some NPRs were made with two C-mounts, custom ordered, or in case you wanted two CA mounts.)

I may have one somewhere. Otherwise, yes, a custom-made one would cost a lot. Les Boscher would be one person to ask.

Best, B.
