Bolex-Paillard underwater housing and Bolex H16 camera

eBay link

Nice Bolex Paillard underwater housing, not beaten up like so many. Kit includes original case, rangefinder, blue filter, two wrenches, and some sort of mount (light meter? Light? -- see photo), a Bolex H16 film camera, and Angenieux 10 mm retrofocus lens. The return spring on the M-STOP-P switch seems a little weak, but the camera does run. There is no carry handle on the case. I'll leave it to the buyer whether to find an original handle, or just get 'a handle' for functionality. The blue filter has some scratches on it, but I suspect these would not be a factor underwater.

Starting bid is $999.99, with a Buy-It-Now price of $1299.99. I wanted a BIN price of $1099.99, but eBay said BIN has to be at least 30% higher than the starting bid.

If you know any SCUBA divers who are also into 16 mm film, pass it on!
