All:

Looking to buy a bolex ebm or el. Anyone have any thoughts on the better camera? The light meter is what's got me hung up, since I'd prefer to have a more "point and shoot" 16mm, though they are both pretty cumbersom

Would love any input from current owners.

Also, too loud to record sound sync? Are barney's easy to find?

Thanks!!!

Adam.

Adam,

Without a blimp, neither Bolex is going to be great for sound sync. They are really noisy. I used to have an EBM with a Bolex factory barney, one for the camera and one for the mag. And it still was very noisy. Plan on doing quite a bit of ADR.

Best,
-Tim
