Re: Best Mitchell Geared Head - Worrall of course!

Congrats on joining the Worrell world. Luckily you live in the LA area. If you can pull the other gear set, there should be a number of area machinest shops capable of making matching replacements from scratch. You might need to shop around. You could even find someone who can take it apart and pit ...

Re: Mitchell copy - made by Seiki Co, Tokyo Japan

David,

Chosei is a DP in Japan. This is just something he knew. No research involved. I will pass on your request but these are pretty private persons in this space. He may be interested in seeing your pix.

Re: Mitchell copy - made by Seiki Co, Tokyo Japan

From my information source, this appears to be a pre Ww2 camera. There were several Mitchell copies, One is Seiki Kogaku (精機製作所), and the other one is Doi Kosaku-jo (土井工作所). The Doi was a rip-off like the post war Russian cameras. Seiki Kogaku ones had produced pre-war era the most, were the famous ...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Guy, Fun thing about the fact the Newall being so nicely fitted to the Mitchell. The Newall camera is the result of Mitchell refusing the Pound as payment.

Re: Mitchell Standard #125 Oct 4 1928

Guy, Yes, interesting camera. Where are you located? Probably a number of people would be interested in this. If it has been sitting for a long time, may need some work. The government bought most Mitchell Standards after 1930 when Mitchell introduced the NC's. Would be happy to talk more ss this wo...

Re: Mitchell Hi-Hat No.850 | Model THA-I-B

Nice collector's piece. The badge is always a plus. Unfortunately the market is very slim these days. To display a prized camera you still beed a period head to mount on it which cuts down the applications. As a working piece, most new film/video people rarely use or know what a highhat is.
