I'd take a Bolex over a Beaulieu any day.

My ex made a pretty decent barney for our R16B that quieted it down to the point that sync sound was possible with all the usual caveats - directional mikes, use longer focal lengths, etc. You could hear the camera running in the background on quiet interviews, etc. but it wasn't too bad. I think it worked because a lot of the noise coming out of a R16 is pretty high pitched so a barney could absorb it, as opposed to low frequency noise that takes a proper blimp to block.
That's pretty cool. I wrapped mine up with what ever was on hand. One thing about my R16 was the sound wasn't so bad until the 200' mag was added. Then it was like OMG... Who knows maybe it was just a bad mag, but it was a noisy camera either way.
Speaking of the high pitch noise I remember when I saw the movie Slackers hearing a high pitched camera sound. Years later I bought the R16 and and its sound reminded me of the camera noise in Slackers. It makes me wonder if they used a Beaulieu.
