About the Bolex Paillard H8 H-8 Deluxe Double 8mm Camera

  • OVERALL DIMENSIONS: 8 1/2″ x 6″ x 3″
  • WEIGHT: Approximately 5 1/2 lbs
  • OUTER CASE: Highly polished duraluminium body, covered in genuine Morocco leather. Metal parts are chrome-plated.
  • FILM CAPACITY: 100ft (30m), 50ft (15m) and 25ft daylight loading spools of double run 8mm film. When a roll runs through the camera, only half the width of film is exposed. The spool is then reversed and run through again, exposing the other half. When processed, film is split and spliced together giving twice the amount for projection.
  • THREADING: Automatic threading and loop forming. The end of the film is simply placed in a channel leading to the feed sprocket. The release is pressed and the film is then automatically threaded throughout the entire mechanism.
  • MOTOR: Constant speed, spring motor mechanism; governor controlled. Large winding handle folds downward and attaches to camera when not in use. Spring cannot be over-wound. 8:1 external drive shaft permits the attachment of an electric motor.
  • TURRET: Rotating turret accommodates three interchangeable D mount lenses. The top position allows for critical focusing through a magnified groundglass screen.
  • VIEWFINDER: Eye-level focuser allows for critical focusing through a groundglass screen. Parallax correcting Octameter gives an exact viewing field for lenses of 8 focal lengths: 6.5mm, 9mm, 12.5mm, 25mm, 36mm, 50mm, 63mm and 75mm.
  • VARIABLE SPEED: 8, 16, 24, 32 and 64 frames per second
  • RELEASE BUTTON: provides for the making of continuous exposures by a finger-tip release on the front of the camera. A side release allows for locked, hands-free running or single frame exposures.
  • SHUTTER: 190 degree aperture shutter
  • FOOTAGE COUNTER: adds and subtracts accurately in forward or reverse motion and automatically returns to zero when film is reloaded into the camera.
  • AUDIBLE FOOTAGE INDICATOR: A distinct click announces the passing of each 10 inches of film through the gate. This mechanism may be disengaged, if desired, by simply moving a lever.
  • FRAME COUNTER: Twin dial counts frames individually and in total; Adds frames in forward motion and subtracts when film is wound backwards. Dial may be reset manually at any time.
  • SINGLE FRAME: Time lapse and animation is possible by using the side release button or an accessory cable release and adapter; I-T lever allows for timed or instantaneous single exposures.
  • MANUAL REWIND: Clutch disengages spring motor and permits forward movement and backwind without running down the spring; allows for dissolves and superimposition.
  • TRIPOD SOCKET: 3/8″ thread

  3. Focus – we check that manual focus is smooth and works well. If automatic focus is included as a feature that is also checked.

  5. Filmgate – this is inspected and any dirt or hair is removed.
  6. Lightmeter – the lightmeter is inspected to ensure it automatically reacts correctly to light. Manual aperture control and/or backlight is also checked if included as a feature.

  8. Battery terminals – we inspect for rust/corrosion, cleaning and repairing where needed.

I can’t thank you enough for your website and the service you provide, I went through three super 8 cameras in this project, including one sold as ‘checked, repaired, CLA’d’, and the one I purchased from you was the only one that worked, and it worked flawlessly! I recommend cameracrate.com to everyone that asks me about the film, absolute mvp!

I hadn't noticed that the seller was in the UK until after the purchase, so when it showed up on my doorstep just a couple days later, I was floored. Great service, great descriptions, and fantastic packaging for international shipments.

Camera was packaged so so well, it probably could’ve been chucked out a car and it wouldn’t have had any damage. Delivery was extremely quick and it looks in great condition. Seller was excellent and would recommend buying from.

The seller has been to a good deal of trouble to ensure a safe delivery to the customer. This was a delicate item and all associated parts were individually packed in the container. Received with appreciation.
