I have read on here about the diy video assist, but nobody really said exactly what is needed to do it. I would hate to buy a bunch of stuff that doesn't work and waste money, so I guess what I'm asking is could someone tell me exactly what to get for a video assist to work on a bolex EBM. thanks

The H8 Reflex viewfinder image being much less magnified than the EBM, you will likely need a wider focal length lens to completely fill the monitor screen, probably either 10mm, 9mm or 8mm.

Cheers,

That camera is not mine. I just remember saving the image for reference. But the description did say custom!

DU-CAMERA offers a kit that is very similar to the one pictured above. My broths and I are currently working on a video assist kit which will allow operators to use the eye piece as well as have video assist like Arri cameras do.
