Hello all,
I've just got hold of an SBM and was disappointed not to find a cable release socket anywhere. :angry:

Does anybody know if / what Bolex accessory i need to shoot single frames without touching the camera ?

Yes, the Bolex SBM takes the same release cable system as all other mechanical Bolex H16 models (since the 1930's!). There are two basic kinds of adapters : one is attached to the side release, the other (rare) attaches to the front release. You then attach a wire release cable with the proper diameter thread to these adapters.
Look in a manual for any H16, there should be an illustration.
These adapters are cmmonly available on eBay for cheap. If in a pich, I can provide you with one, but I'm in Europe.
Best, B.

Hi Boris, Thanks for that useful information.
I'm actually still waiting for the instruction manual to turn up so I'll check that when I get it.

( I'll keep my eyes open for one on eBay ).

All the best, and thanks again. :rolleyes:
