During these times we will try to meet your CINE CAMERA & CINE LENS NEEDS and SERVICE !!

We are America's oldest factory-authorized Bolex™ H16 dealer. There are only three factory-authorized dealers in the US. We attempt to stock all the Bolex™ new factory products that are offered. We are in our 41st happy year. Founded in Atlanta in 1979.

You will need to order by E-Mail, or USPS Mail. E-Mail is bolexcce@ellijay.com. I know this can be less convenient for some of you, but in my senior years I need a little more freedom to enjoy my family and smell the roses.


(Many of you have asked if we still re-cell batteries, YES we do NiCd and NiMH and some Lead acid, but not Lithium or Li-ion.)

We have many other brands of 16mm and Super 8 motion picture equipment and supplies.
