I was looking at a Bolex  Rex1 and noticed that it did not have a turret handle on it, it seem to have holes where it should be, Is it hard to get a handle for it? is it difficult to put back on? and will the camera still film ok with out the handle on it..ie light leaks getting in through the holes where the handle screws on to the face of the camera.

 

Thanks

a missing turret handle won't affect the image in any way, no light leak or anything.

 

A Bolex technician or repair facility should be able to access the parts to replace one if needed. It's a pretty simple job.
