Bolex Collector is published by Michael Tisdale, a collector and user of classic amateur movie cameras since approximately 1991.

I began this website as a personal project to catalog information about Paillard-Bolex, a Swiss company that manufactured clockwork movie cameras for both the professional and home movie maker. features my personal collection of Paillard-Bolex related products and advertising from the late 1930s through the early 1970s. It is intended to serve as an online resource for Bolex enthusiasts, collectors of motion picture cameras and anyone with an interest in the history of amateur movie-making equipment.

Thanks for stopping by. If you have any comments or suggestions, please email me.
