Hi everyone,

I was just wondering how much work needs to be done on an H-16 to shoot single perf - is it just a matter of removing the loop guides like the K3 or is it more complicated than that?

Cheers
Tim

Rex models are set up for single perf. If you have a non-reflex, it may or may not be depending on the year it was made. Look at the sprocket wheels. If you see two sets of sprocket pins, you can't run single perf. I know someone who took a dremel tool and ground off the unneeded pins and he had no problems running single perf after that. That's a messing endeavor, however, and you'll get plenty metal dust floating around. Best to just spend another fifty bucks or so and get an older model RX.

Lots of H-16 non-reflex cameras are perfectly happy with single perf film. The beginning serial number that was factory set up for single perf is mentioned on a sidebar in my Identifying Your Bolex articles on my website: http://www.tobincine...com/page75.html
