Re: Renting vintage Mitchell cameras as props

Thank you for providing this information. It is helpful. I noticed in another posting that you loaned your Mitchell to the folks producing the Laurel & Hardy film. It must be a thrill to see your camera starring in a feature film. I have been researching rental houses and some have a daily and weekl...

Renting vintage Mitchell cameras as props

I sometimes rent my Mitchell NC, Mitchell blimp and Mitchell tripods to feature film Producers as props only but knowing how much to charge is a challenge. I'd appreciate it if another collector of maybe a feature film Producer would let me know what a reasonable rate would be. In other words a dail...

Wanting to buy a Worrell geared head

Does anyone have a working Worrell geared head for sale to suit my Mitchell cameras? (I have a Blimp and an NC) I am in Brisbane Australia and can't find one down here. I realise that the shipping is going to be expensive.

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Hi Mark, Many thanks indeed for finding the fabulous photo with John wayne and number 10. I have visited San Francisco several times.

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Hi Mark, Good morning from Brisbane. We are hearing a lot on our news down here about the cold and snow over there. I'll bet you guys are inside in front of fires drinking hot chocolate (or gluhwein) Thank you very much for your researching the history of my magazine blimp. You don't get much more f...

Hi Mark,

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Hi Mark, I will be removing the brass plate from the front of magazine blimp number #10 and will get a new plate with wording indicating that only the magazine blimp is #10. I originally added the brass plate to cover 4 holes which is where I assumed a plate once was. You'll notice the only provenan...
