I have a Bolex H16 with a Super 16mm-widened gate. I have been using the
Vario-Kern zoom lens. My problem is that the lens vignettes when
shooting wider than 26mm. I am looking for a lighter-more compact
alternative(s), thinking of traveling, both zoom and prime that will not
vignette on the S16 format.
I am assuming I will have to go C Mount for which I already have an adapter.
I am not sure if vignetting will be an issue whenever going wider than 26mm.
The 26mm Kern lens looks good but pricewise impossible.
I saw this lens: that looks good but again don’t know how it works with S16:
Schneider Kreuznach Variogon 1.8 12.5 75 C
Any comments appreciated.
