Just wondering... I plan on trying some hand cranking on my Bolex Rex-4. Does anyone know some general tips for f-stops? Also, with the 1:1 shaft: Is it even possible?
I suggest using the 8:1 shaft. Turning it twice per second gives you 16 fps or silent film speed if that is the effect you're going for. So expose for around 16 fps speed. Turning 3 times per second to get 24 fps or sound speed is possible but you'll wear your arm out quickly.

H8 is nice to play with especially if you can run 100' loads. Lots of run time... : )
