Bolex H16 Non Reflex ca. 1955.
A classic 16mm film camera
often used for documentary filmmaking. Bolex cameras are durable and
made with Swiss precision. The design was exceptional and many of the
features of the 1950s cameras remain unchanged in the current reflex
models. Super 8mm is more economical at $25 to $40 for a 50 foot cartridge.
16mm will run $45 to $80 per 100 foot daylight spool of 2.5 minute
duration. Super 8mm has a resolution equal to any consumer to professional
DV format video camera. 16mm ranks higher in resolution and can be
blown to 35mm projection prints with very high quality. New Bolex H16
cameras can be gotten in Super 16mm format (compatible with wide screen
16:9) for under $6000 and the standard 1.33 aspect cameras are about
$3500 new. Used Bolex cameras are often in excellent working order
and under $2000.
For my Tamalpais Community Education classes
in Adobe Premiere, I have put
together the following list of useful books.
This list is not at all exhaustive but only a sampling of some useful books
on some of the issues envolved in video editing and filmmaking from a
computer base, using both video and film cameras.
A short jog to the memory of the many
functions in the source monitor.
Also, see some useful information about
masking for both Adobe Premiere and Photoshop.
