I bought this camera a little while back with the intention of making it my main vacation camera, but I have too many already.
Bolex 551XL Sound Macro Zoom
Amazingly fast 1.2 8-40mm Lens
Macro Barrel extension - see video
18 and Single Frame shooting speeds
Flash Socket for animation
I tested her out and all the functions seem to work fine.
-The fade looks to works well.
-The zoom motor works forward and back
-Overall great running condition!
The only flaws I can find in the camera are:
-Battery door has a chip off one side. (Shown in Video and pics.) Cosmetic flaw only.
-The footage counter has a loose piece in it. Again, purely cosmetic.
-The run/lock switch doesn't work. It doesn't lock. It runs great though.
I made a quick video on youtube of the camera running. (Sorry about the focus issues, flip cam.)
