I have a Rex5 that I am just about to have JK convert to s16. I am assuming you don't plan to ever use to 400ft mag?
The only reasons to go with an SBM would be if you wanted to use a PL-mount adapter at some point to put some modern glass on the camera - or if you planned to use some heavy zooms/35mm primes that would weigh your Rex4 turret down (e.g., bayonet-only mount Kern zoom lens).
Even so, you could always get Les Bosher to convert your Rex4 and he would replace the C mount with a Bolex bayonet (a little bit more $). So I would say go with JK unless you plan to use PL glass.
Hi i just got a Bolex REX4 in good condition.
I´m thinking to upgrade to Super 16 + 13X viewfinder. JBK do this conversion + lube (around 1500 $)
what do you think about this? Is a good choice spend money to convert to S16 this camera? I have a Aaton LTR7 S16 and I´m looking for a small and easy to travel S16 cam, but I´m not sure about covert this model or find a Bolex SBM to covert it to S16. Pros, cons? any advice?
thanks to all.
