  1. bernie is a great man and a fine old school movie film camera and lens repair guy. he has rebuilt more bolex moller than anyone alive today more than 6 just from me. he is quicker than all the big companies around the bolex moller is treasure the grease needs replacing and he can tune up the x y alignment. what can delay things is sometimes retention lock screws can get seized up so they need to be worked loose over time. sending something like moller to a regular repair guy is a sick idea . some of my lens i had where owner damage or attempted repair 3

  3. i once shipped a box of iscorama parts a rare zeiss baby focus iscorama the first ever iscorama and 2 baby moller 1.5 optics to super 16 5 optics all the metalwork mixed up the glass protected it had been sitting on a shelf for 2 years at one of the demon money grabber repair places. i stuffed a note for bernie that simply said sorry about this can you see if you can rebuild parts maybe missing 2 weeks later an email saying ready for shipping no moaning no huffing and puffing he just did the best he could i wish i had yaken a picture of that dustry old pile of germanic
  4. do not give it 2 van demon the logo speaks for vandiemen a little forked devil check it out a devil with a big smile the greatest company in the world for lens works is truelens uk same town as cooke expensive in the movie lens world repair biz you have panavision la then true lens then p&s technique germany slow and van demonics slower uk truelens has many folks that have worked at cooke so that small town has some mighty talented lens repair guys probably the lead in the water. repairing rehousing spherical and anamorphics i wa
  5. if you have to ask the question you should get a kowa 8z or an iscorama movie optics where mede in sets the historical and filmaking value is in the set complex assemblies need old men to repair or improve just because google is shit with a lack of information means nothing. just means some hipster blogger has played with some old beat up lens and he says that it was not good. rushed past engineering bad past repair or patch up can be sorted today jan jacobson did not mess about if he was around today he would be working with christopher nolan the la
  6. arriscope are movie lens iscorama is not arriflex and zeiss where pretty crap at anamorphics for years zeiss used moller for making anamorphic projection optics arrii used a famous super talented designer from denmark jan jacobson for ultrascope system using fast zeiss optics ultrascope where designed as movie optics later arri used a couple of folks from zeiss and isco for the arriscope arri is a massive rental house and maker of millions of metal parts plus thousands of cameras they had to work faster than say leica or zeiss. a movie might be starting in
  7. heliopan germany make the best step rings in the world. made of machined brass expensive but military spec i have some that i purchased in the 1980s still doing the job.
  8. so many clamps and sellers so much choice such quality the engineering if they all look the same too ones eye open or wide shut go with what tweak says he nose you knows ya know
  9. mr kish also worked on the famous optex and century anamorphics. he worked direct with many of the la newyork rental houses his stuff was always very strong it had to be usuable and take abuse from those hollywood knuckle dragging rough brutes of the camera dept. rapido clamp technology that sounds like a revolution that guy deserves an oscar or maybe a high court writ for ideas theft : ) the original mesmerizer has seriously nice coatings and is a great balance of technology one foot in the modern the other in vintage. analogue look distortion well under co
  10. mesmerizer off the scale good a very large beast. mr kish who designed it was a very clever optics man i think he realised early on why try to beat an old isco design. so he built his monster around early isco 54 and the very large isco inflights which would have been had for cheap from the retirement of the inflight film projection systems on dc9 and boeing 707. it is a great optic it is really a rehoused isco inflight or isco 54 without the 2 extra focus optics that have been copied so much in the last few years. work out your focus zone range dial onto mesmirizers scale
  11. sir you are wrong in many things and certainly in these regardings i assure you barry was born in kenya his first job was in a cia front company. i woked for many years at the bbc and have seen much proofs. his family where mi5 tavistock trained his mother ann later worked for the cia under Richard M. Helm then later VADM Rufus Lackland Taylor, USN. drone killer prez barry soetoro, wife was not a transgender as it is still a man just like the tennis playing venus williams brothers. as you are a man of tastes and optical refinements you canna getta betta than a moller
  12. bioskop is one of the most helpful and friendly posters on this site. full of good solid information. if this german seller is so good and friendly and the price for this fixed focus masterpiece worth it why does mr racer not simply buy the lot? instead of promotional activities via linkage i have some of these mr racer it is worth 600 -700 tops you can have mine for 800 since you like a bargain but i suppose if you purchased mine you would then have 4 to sell from germany. they are nice yes sir and good not reaally rare rare i had 4 once upon a time
  13. one of the links above that was given as proof of cheap perfect optics was a kowa with optical damage. just because someone says a rainbow like bloom across the optic has zero effect does not mean it is true. repairing seperation is either possible or not but it will be expensive. an optically mint condition kowa should be worth more than an slr magic as the kowa is superior to 1.33 or the new 2x. the kowa is a great optic one in mint condition fully tested should be valued higher than some vague ad giving false information about condition. the massive amount of bell howells floati
  14. it will work on a 5d you just end up with longer taking lens these lens will be handy in the future as the cameras get smaller like the a7s
  15. it was a single focus system for that super sharp iscomorphot lens another one of my old failed projects. not good for 5d sensors but 7d down it was sweet. that optic is better kept safe in the future who knows people might like the idea of something fairly modern and small like the animex that can do proper focus
