Hi everybody,
Is there a place where I can get Pathe Webo 16mm camera manual ?
I met a guy whith an old one that he don't know anything about it, but want to work a little bit with.
I want to help him but it seems a little bit hard (strange) to do.
Don't want to do a mistake.
So THE camera manual would be nice...

Its concept is indeed a good one. The Ciné-Kodak Special lives in it, model E also. You have a big housing base and a very low put optical axis. Maximum rigidity for long lenses and close-up possibilities

 

The pellicle mount is a little French, to say it politely. But like the Paillard-Bolex H Reflex where the long prism was simply tucked in with cork pieces these are consumer cameras. Paillard after some time glued that prism to the cover sheet and underlied a piece of foam rubber.

 

There are a few steps between all the throw-away products and pro gear. The Revere 101-103-105, by the way, has a first class film gate, far better than the Pathé WEBO. Its viewfinder, on the other hand, is a joke.
