Hello friends,

today I found a nice and cheap editor.
The Bolex V180 duo
It seems complete, from what i've seen in the net, it misses only the black plastic cover above the lamp, I hope that it didn't include any necessary parts.

So, i've tested it and it seems to work great, however I cannnot seem to find how to adjust the frame (move the frame up or down).

Anyone happens to know or better anyone has the manual?

thanks in advance
ilias

This editor looks similar to my HANIMEX E310. Try pushing the button on the sprocket wheel in and hold, pull the film until you get the frame right on the screen, then release the button [Smile]

Many many thanks Joe!!!
Problem solved!

I had played a bit with the sprocket assembly before I asked, but the button was hard to push and I thought it was just a handle for the sprocket wheel [Smile]

How's the picture on that editor? I got out bid on one on ebay a while back.

Bryan i'm probably not the best person to comment on that, since its the first editor i'm using, but under my inexperienced eyes, the editor has a very good image.

The screen is rather big, comparing to most editors i've seen, and the picture is clear and brightly enough.
I'm quite happy with the result [Wink]
