I have a project with a Bolex H16 and Nikor lenses (C-Mount) very soon and I need an assistant. I´m in London.
This is an unpaid position, since the film is not for profit and all crew are working unpaid to make the film happen and tell the story.
PS: I have a little doubt because of Nikor lenses and C-Mount adaptor I think I´m going to lost 1/3 of light, am I right?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

The RX lenses do not have adjusted aperture scales.
The best advice is to simply forget about any compensation and just use the camera with any lens as you would any other
... except... (can't help myself) - be aware that lenses at and certainly below 25mm without 'RX' on them will be not be optically ideal (sharpest) at the open end of the scale.

Closer to half a stop than a third.
But you'll find differences of opinion on the actual shutter angle anyway
