I've made a couple short films on 16mm film, and I'd like to finally get my own camera. However, beyond the Bolex I borrowed from my college, I don't really have familiarity with what's out there, and where to go to get it.

So, my questions are:
- What specific models/brands should I be looking for?
- What models/brands still have support available (repair or replacement of parts)?
- Where's a trustworthy place to buy one? (Working and operable cameras, but not necessarily brand new)
- What kind of prices should I be expecting?

If there's anything I'm forgetting to consider, let me know.

There's an entire camera subforum.
"The Dorkroom", it has multiple gear recommendation threads.
