Hi everyone. Just unearthed a Bolex camera and there are a lot of goodies that I need help identifying. Below are the pictures. Any idea as to what they are? Thanks.

How big is the item in the second pic?

It could be a piece of the viewing system from a Som Berthiot reflex viewing lens used on some nonreflex bolex cameras....?

.....Unless we know the demensions it will be tuff. Can you see through it?

First piece looks exactly like my Bolex's Som Berthoit zoom lens stick. I don't recognize the second.

Thank you everyone for your help. Indeed, one of the lenses was a Som Berthiot. The item in the 2nd picture is about 8 inches long.

Sorry about the clarity of the pictures --- I was only allowed to post a certain amount of KB, so I had to reduce the quality of the pics.

Thank you all again.

Well, at 8 inches long if you can see through the second item then I guess it is just what I said, a piece of the reflex lens viewfinder. Looks like the plus-minus 5 diopter eyepiece is on the non-threaded end. Is this correct? Is there a compensation ring on one end?

I had one of these cameras. They are badass little 16mm packages that are capable of very good images. If you are looking to replace some parts ebay usually has a boat-load of Bolex products. Keep it nice, Bolex deserves it! :)
