I have a 16mm Bolex H16 reflex camera, with one 1 inch/25mm lens. Very simple.
My problem is that when the lens is attached tightly onto the turret, through the viewfinder, nothing is ever in focus. It is NOT a problem with the diopter. Everything is blurry regardless of the focus ring settings.
When I loosen the lens two to three turns, everything is now in focus through the viewfinder.
1) What do you think is the problem here?
2) What should I base my focus on? The measurements on the ring when correctly attached to the turret, regardless of what I'm seeing through the viewfinder, or should I leave the lens unscrewed a bit and trust the viewfinder?
I am going to try and get my film developed this week, but this is making me very nervous, because I don't like wasting film. Too expensive.
