Re: BNCR Serial Number on movement and blimp?

Greg, Would suggest it is a real hassle to dismantle a BNCR to find the possible factory stamp on the inside. Probably unnecessary. On the BNC, the camera was designed to slide sideways on the internal gibs in order to rack over the focus and could be slid out of the blimp easily. Much like the stan...

Re: Mitchell goes to war

Flashlarue, Looks to be a Mitchell Standard. It has both the adjustable 4 way matte and iris controls on the front. Looks like a high speed motor from the tach. The tripod and head are also Mitchell. Parker could have become a director after the war based on his experience. Lots of people in the fil...

Re: BNC #17 looking for any info

Did you look at the top left serial numbers tab to find the year for the camera first? I take it there is no camera or motor so our registry is not viable. My records show #17 to be one of a number of lend-lease cameras sent to the USSR and made in 1939. That doesn't seem a likely thing to be back h...

Re: History of BNC mount

Dom, Embarrassed to say that I have not delved into lenses as much as I should. Know the BNC mount came about because of the desire to have different lenses available and a quick way of changing them. B&L supposedly had some input in the design. Could you post a few pictures here to show us what...

Re: History of BNC mount

Dom, Welcome. If you check the serial numbers tab at the top right, you will find that 86 BNC' s were made before 1950. The first one was made for Sam Goldwyn in 1934 from an unsold NC. In design for a truly silent studio camera,(NC- 35db, BNC-21db) it was found the most noise after blimping the bod...

Re: "Buying a Mitchell Camera" guide

I just got a message asking about HAND CRANKS. Really missed on that one. Hopefully I can change the guide. In the meantime... Here's the deal: Was stated that "a Mitchell with a hand crank proves that the camera is old, right?" WRONG . Every Mitchell camera featuring an external motor ha...
