Also referred to as Crop Tops. The Auricon company refused to adapt their product so it was left to outfits like Frezzolini to take up the slack.

This looks to be an Auricon conversion camera. The original CM models were for 100' loads circa 1957. In the mid 60's, some were modified to take a 400' load with the addition of the very common Mitchell mags. (Why reinvent something so readily available?) These were mostly for TV news and documentary work. This is a fairly complete setup missing the normally fitted self-reflexed Angeneuix 12-120 lens. The mix/amplifier used a very specific NiCad battery that is impossible to replace but will run off the charger. As a collector's item, missing the lens is a deficit but having the accessories may be of interest to someone. Have seen camera with mag alone go for $360+ in the past on E-Bay, so maybe a good start price in auction mode. Hope this helps. ED.
