The pictures included here are part of a extended effort to round out at least 30 to -40 shots of the BNC 356 .
There will be a set of shots of BNC 356 in action much later .
These shots display the famous wide diameter lens port which -I believe attracted Stanley Kubrick to order-from a Studio- two of the BNC rack over cameras.
Somehow studio executive John Calley was involved and I recall that Mr Calley asked the secretive Mr Kubrick
"why are you buying these cameras ?"
Seen in the photos are
-4 way adjustable matt leaves
-rollers on a removable pressure plate at the back of the closed film gate
Much more detail will be added later
here is a link to a story describing the Kubrick-Cinema Products saga on utilizing the Mitchell BNC
for use with special lenses
