Re: Mitchell Standard #414 for SALE (SOLD)

Danita, If you are looking to buy a Mitchell, be advised they are getting to be pricey especially with lenses and accessorues. If or when you find one, always ask for the serial number and look it up on our serial number chart. These cameras may look old but the basic design was still the same into ...

No. Completely different system. They ditched the turret and went with a quick change mount to counter front of the camera noise. That mount is what the PL mount came from. The Panavision mount is essentially the same with a rotation of the locator pin. Afterall, the GC/Standard mount was a 1920 des...

Re: Linwood Dunn/Star Trek

Sorry for the delay. Busy with studio project. I have a better picture similar to your second shot but it looks like a setup shot since the camera is not plugged in.

Re: 4 reel Magazine

Neal, Welcome. You have half your answer already but as to the use, it is complicated. The Bipack was something Mitchell cameras could handle because of the long shafts for the pulldowns and the registration pins. Other specially built optical printer and camera stand cameras were specifically desig...
