Bolex EBM 16mm

Post by bakasutchi »

Hi, I have recently bought a Bolex EBM 16mm camera which looks mint. I have been reliably informed by the previous owner that only about 2000ft of film has been exposed through the camera. I have re celled the Bolex external battery pack and the camera runs at all speeds. The only slight problem is that the red light on the rear of the camera does not briefly light up when the camera starts up. So far I have not run any film through, would that make a difference. Is this an easy fix if its a problem with the bulb itself. Thank you for any info.
