In the days of unparalleled popularity of Bolex reflex models there was still great demand for more economical non-reflex cameras. Bolex therefore introduced two almost identical 3-lens turret models similar to the Bolex supreme, however without a filter slot and with a less sophisticated viewfinder system.
The Octameter viewfinder on the camera door was replaced with the 5 position Preview Viewfinder and the eye level focusser (available as an optional accessory) was replaced by focusing eyecup with magnifier on model H16 T.
Although this picture shows an Eye Level Focusser attached.
