I need to use this lens on a Bolex REX 5 but there are a couple of things I am unsure about:
there is a small push button to run the camera from the lens body right below the screw-in hole to attach the "remote" start stop cable.
This push button can be swung to the left and to the right against two small symbols ( two circles, one with a small black dot and the other with a big black dot in it) and appears to affect the built in metering.
All info about how to use this properly would be greately apreciated.

Thank You

The POE has a two blade servo iris mechanism - I think you can set a preset iris so when you start shooting it will go to that setting immediately (keeping the iris open for viewing the brighter image when not shooting) - this switch will be related to that somehow...

There is a manual or at least a brochure here:

This question is related to 16mm cinematography - I think you would get much better replies if you put (both) of your threads in there ... :rolleyes:
