Hi

I need a Crystal Sync motor for my Bolex H16 RX4 super 16 camera.
Which one should I get?

I would like to have one that is easy to take of if I want it to be more lightweight again...

Cheers and thanks in advance

Although i do not own this particular model i highly recommend the Tobin product range.
I have / had several products of Tobin Cinema Systems and they perform excellent.
All the motors are discontinued. You'll have to find one maybe on ebay or from a rental house sale.

Duall Camera carries Tobin equipment. I bought the Tobin Time Lapse motor from them and it's very nice. Here is a link to their site showing the model you would need. I believe this is the only one they have left.

If you can't get a Tobin, then your best option is probably the Bolex ESM motor. You will also need the cables and crystal pulse accessory that plugs into it. This is also a good motor. They pop up on ebay once in awhile, but you can also try Dieter at Procam if you're in the U.S. (Bolex factory rep.) or maybe Andrew Alden in the UK. Hope this helps.

Procam has one TXM-10B Tobin motor. I'm not familiar with this model, but you can contact the folks at Procam for more info.
