Another spring motor camera that can be purchased for just a little
more than a filmo (about $100-$150) is the Russian made Krasnogorsk
K-3. These come standard with a single zoom lens (17-69mm), give you
the ability to single frame, and lets you see what you are shooting.
Also, it has a pistol grip and shoulder stock which makes it (IMO) the
best low cost 16mm for hand held shots. Like the filmo it is heavy and
sturdy (mine's bounced off a few boulders with no apparent damage), but
alternate lenses are harder to come by.
I purchased one as an undergrad, and it's served me well for close to 7
years. It's not a bolex, but it gets the job done.
