I am anxiously awaiting delivery of a just purchased Bolex D8L. It has 3 lenses, 5.5 wide angle, a 13 and a 36 telephoto. The owner of it sez it has been freshly serviced and is ready to go. I would love any words of wisdom from anyone with these cameras. I am not going to ask "How do I shoot with this" as I will buy some film and go !!! I am hoping to use some 100D. I am wanting to do some filming at night with some fill lighting. I am sure I will prolly want to go with a higher ASA film but I will see what happens.
I would love to hear from any Bolex 8mm folks and would love to know who I can ask some advice from and hopefully soon share some footage with. I am going to do some music videos and some Low-Budget Horror shorts with it.... I know, I know, I can hear "go 16mm stupid" from some already, but I am gonna learn this tool then maybe move on.
