The Revolution Motor Time Lapse, Single-Frame and
Crystal-Sync motor for all Bolex.
"Congrats, it's a fine piece of engineering. I would have never thought you would be able to get both such fine control and fast speeds out of an 8:1 shaft. I love the way the motor ramps up to speed for crystal speeds. Very Impressive."
- Gary Elmer, Eye Line Cinematography
Two Models available:
Single Frame/Time Lapse motor only (REVB-100..$995)
Single-frame/Time Lapse + Crystal Sync (REVB-100S..$1495)
Great day, night and experimental timelapse and sync shots!
uses the 8:1 shaft, so it will work on all Bolexes, early
and late model
control box can be removed from motor unit and connected
via a 6' cable
digital direct drive motor - no brushes to wear
out, no gears to break down!
17 times more reliable then old-technology Bolex
the request of all the experimental filmmakers out there (who knew there
were so many) we have added reverse running capability. Shoot,
rewind, then double-expose. Full speed or single-frame.
Sync Features (REVB-100S model only)
Film at Sync speeds from 1 to 40fps, in 1-fps increments.
Video Speeds of 23.976 and 29.970 built-in!
accelerates smoothly to sync speed, decelerates smoothly to stop. Automatic shutter parking.
If desired, preset the number of seconds of film you
want your shot to be and filming will stop automatically.
Animation and Time Lapse features
Exact intervals from 1 second to 9 hours can be set precisely
on the digital thumbwheels - a vital feature for matching shots.
Crystal-controlled interval and shutter speeds--no variation like with
a wild gearmotor
Shutter speeds of 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 sec
and long exposures of over 9 hours!.
Change the shutter speed or interval while running! That's
right, if the sun is going down, and you want a longer
exposure, you can change it without stopping and re-starting
Presets! Store filming settings in permanent memory.
