February '07 Updates and Additions

February 22, 2007 -- Thursday
I know it's a short month, but where did the time go? I haven't been able to add much to the site recently, or answer some of your emails, thanks to some computer gremlins and a hard drive that died. Fortunately I made backups of my Bolex related stuff and email folders before they were lost forever. I wish I could say the same for my collection of fonts and photoshop plugins.

Apologies to anyone whose emails I haven't yet replied to.

New Additions!

I managed to scan some new brochures. I've added them to the Gallery of Advertising sections. I've also included a French language brochure, courtesy of a UK contributor. Enjoy. They're scattered all over the site, so I'll list the new scans here for easy reference:

  1. 1946 - Cine Projector G
  2. 1947 - L8 Camera
  3. 1950 - M8 Projector
  4. 1950 - L8 Camera
  5. 1953 - Pan Cinor Lens
  6. 1953 - B8 Camera
  7. 1954 - B8 and C8 Cameras
  8. 1955 - 8mm and 16mm Bolex Equipment
  9. 1958 - Anamorphic Lens attachment
  10. 1969 - Multimatic Projector

My site updates are irregular. But if you want to know about the latest additions as soon as they're made, you can subscribe to an RSS feed for this site. Just click the orange icon and make your selection from that page.


Yes, I now have a MySpace page. Sure, I scoffed at Myspace at first -- a haven for predators and pasty shut-ins, I thought. But it's a pretty good networking tool. I've been able to reconnect with old friends and it's an easy way to keep in touch with family. Now I'm addicted to it. So, if you have a MySpace profile, feel free to add bolexcollector to your friend list.

Look for more updates and additions here in the next few weeks. Thanks for your patronage, contributions and comments.
