Sorry about the delay posting these. I had completely forgotten about doing this. Better late than never I guess.

Hello Mark. What a small world regarding this being the same camera. We would love to see detailed pictures! Please post as many as you can or alternately, I could devote an entire "Photo Tour" page on our web site with a credit to you. In that scenario, I would love to see 50 or so photos and I could send you a link where you could upload them all at once. This is one of my most favorite Mitchells.

Regards,
Theodore

I was offered this very camera by Martin Hill around 1995 for 18k. I didn't purchase it at the time because I was looking for a smaller-lighter 8 perf camera and settled on a Stein that had 3 reg pins. I have detailed photos of this camera that I took when it was at Martin's place. I can post them if anyone here wants to see them

The VistaVision that is at the museum of moving image has a lot of history. It first went to Egypt with DeMille to film the Ten Commandments, and toward the end of its life was used by ILM. The other VV pictured on the short metal base, or hi-hat, is also significant, but I can't remember the number, I am thinking no. 3? If that is correct it also went to Egypt! Lots of great great history here!

IMHO, this is the best thread at this site! This beauty resides in New York at the Museum of the Moving Image. Go see it when you are in the Big Apple!
