I recently picked up this camera and am trying to decide what to with it. The turret is pretty loose and seems like it would spill in light. I've seen some turret locks on other Bolexs but have no idea where to get one. But the lock wouldn't stop the spill, if thats possible. Has anyone else shot on a Bolex with a loose turret? How did the footage turn out? btw, by "loose" I mean that it rocks slightly. If you were to handle the lens, you could rock the turret back and forth about 1/16".
As an alternate route, I've also seen pictures of cameras with the turret replaced with a single lens mount. Where could I research this? And what are the benefits?
