I hope you can help since my students got a near new Bolex 160 Macrozoom and we are still figuring out how to make a correct exposure. Does it have manual exposure? I really hope you can help since their project is due in a couple of weeks. Ah! They're using 7266 film by the way!

As far as I remember there is no manual exposure override, but there is an exposure lock that will fix the f/stop wherever you point the camera.

If there's time, they might want to test the camera with both Tri-X and Plus-X. For a number of very complicated reasons, some cameras will either over or under expose one or the other.
