What are the changes to made on a Bolex H8 REX (1962), so that it can turn in Ultrapan8?
 
In addition to the exposer window and the view finder, It should also, I suppose, change the adapter plate lenses to increase the focal length of 2.2 mm and focus it on the middle of the width of the exposed film?

An Ultrapan8 camera is an amalgamation of parts from a H16RX and a H8RX.

Basically, film transport parts are from the H8RX and optical components from the H16RX.

The Ultrapan8 will have a H16RX lens mount and can accept all 16mm C-mount lenses.

H8RX lenses and lenses for super8 C-mount cameras cannot be used.
