Hello, I have a Bolex H8 Rex 4 and I would have liked to have an original Bolex bag or case, so I bought an H-1 version of Bolex bags, convinced that it was good for the whole series H : http://www.bolexcollector.com/accessories/case50.html Unfortunately it is not suitable for my Rex 4, it does not come in because the camera have the base, instead this model of case is made for the old H series without the base. Do you know the right bag models for a Rex 4? Thank you.

Thanks, Bryan. It have the part for the base of camera more wide, compared to the one I have. It has a piece in vertical instead of horizontal, to let a Rex-4 comfortably enter (I see that yours is also a Rex4!).
Only thing: I see that the camera in bag is slightly crooked, is it for the rubber eyepiece pressures, it pushes camera a bit? When are you carrying the camera are stable? The lid close properly? Thank you.

Bryan, a curiosity about this case. I saw that in your case the piece circle in green in photo is missing, but there is the "sign", as if it had been there before. I don't know if disassembled you the piece, but I answer myself on why: that piece goes against the Rexofader (not provided when the suitcase was produced) and you have to remove it, otherwise the case doesn't close well. However, now I have the case like you, all right, except for the fact say.
