Bolex Trigger Handle/Grip
Posted 10 January 2011 - 11:32 AM
I recently bought a H16-M5 and I was wondering if I could attach a trigger handle made for earlier H16 "round base" models to my flat-base M5. It's an earlier grip that was designed for the H16 Standard/Leader/Deluxe models. I'm a bit wary of purchasing it and then realizing that it won't function properly on the camera's base. I know that Bolex has a great reputation for accessories that one can use on all different sorts of models, I'm just not sure if this particular grip is built to make use of the base due to it's age. If anyone can advise me, I'd be really appreciative.
Thanks in advance.

The only reason I'm curious if the grip will work on my M5 is because of what great condition the grip is in. Otherwise, I would just purchase the grip on ebay. But it's in such pristine condition that I want to at least know if it'll work with my M5. I would normally just test it, but I'm currently vacationing upstate while he's back in the city, several hours away. I just want to know now if it'll work on M5 so he doesn't have to wait on me to sell it in other venues. He was giving me the courtesy of first dibs, but I just want to make sure he's not waiting for nothing.
I hope that kind of illuminates the situation better, and thanks for the advice anyway, Chris.
