    Paillard-Bolex B8L 8mm cine camera made in the United States, 1958.

    The B8L was the first Bolex camera with through-the-lens metering. Clockwork-driven, the camera ran at 12, 16, 18, 24, 32, 48 and 64 frames per second: it could also be run a frame at a time. It was the first 8mm Bolex with a variable shutter (for in-camera fades and mixes). The camera used double-run 8mm film.
