    Widest Lens For Super 16mm: C-Mount?
    #1
    Default
    I'm looking a Wide Angle/Fisheye for my Bolex Rex 4 - Super 16mm.

    Does anyone know what the best option? I have a 10mm Kern, but want a real fisheye.

    someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i think the bolex c mount is slightly different and needs lenses designed specifically for that camera. Even your link David says it will not work with Reflex Bolex. I used to have 6mm cheap CCTV C mount lens that worked fine on my Eclair ACL, i have no experience with the Bolex mount.

    There are Kern 5.5mm Aspheron and Century 6mm Aspheron adapters for your 10mm depending on which version you have.
    Check out the lenses list at Chambless Cine, the oldest and largest Bolex dealer in the country.

    Do you happen to have/know of footage shot with this? I already own the kern 10mm 1.6, so this could be an option. I am kind of afraid of what it would look like optically though. Would it be soft and have distortion similar to the tokina 11-16? I'm looking for a traditional fisheye look.

    I've seen this one and thought about it. My only concern is resell value. Seems like something you'd have to hold onto for a while.
