Hi,

some time since i dropped by :rolleyes:

recently acquired a Bolex P3, which seems to be in good condition. only trouble is, i have identified the modern replacement battery for the meter - WeinCELL MRB400 - but do not understand how to adapt it to the rather deep battery compartment, seeing that the modern cell battery is formed like a shallow capsule?

can anybody help, please?

sorry this is under Super 8, but i couldn't find a Standard, Regular or Double 8 category?

I use Aluminum rod to span the gap in the battery compartment of my P-series cameras.

thanks Glen,

totally new to Standard 8 - looking forward to trying out the P3 - managed to find a duplicate manual at 'Old Timer' company, so should be up and filming soon (hope) ;)
