Re: Mitchell bottom

Great looking camera! Thanks for sharing the photo. A lot of the cameras were converted. In the case of BNCs, a lot of the main part of the camera, the main housing of the movement, went overseas, I think mostly Japan, for animation. Also the Cinema Products company used a lot of the same part of th...

Re: Mitchell bottom

Ooooh, too bad. Do you know who owned this camera? I could look up who the first buyer was if you don't already know. Does it have the special effects options, matte wheel, floating iris, etc.? Care to share any other Photos?

Re: Mitchell Side Viewfinder

viewfinder is for a 16mm Mitchell camera. I believe the optics may be a bit different since it is a different format film. These still have value so you should consider selling this one and picking up a correct Mitchell finder for 35mm format.

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

So is Ed "Mediaed" still on the board? I just PM him about his BNCR104. My question is, is he certain this is a Mitchell Conversion, rather than one of the cameras they made as a BNCR? I know they made just over 130 cameras as reflexed and that they converted some of their BNCs to reflex. ...

Re: Stiff Movement on Mitchell Standard (advice)

Nice! I must apologize but it looks like I never provided info on your camera. What I know is that it was first sold from Mitchell November 10, 1928. The records I have indicate that it was a High Speed version, which would have meant it had ball bearings. It was sold to....; R.C.A. Photophone. Your...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Oh yes, I have seen photos with Technicolor cameras on these blue painted Mitchell legs. Although I don't think it is common to have big Moy or Worrall heads on them, but I have seen that too. I've been told, but not seen in person, That there are two sizes of Mitchell friction heads and the Technic...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Hello Tiffany, Very nice tripod. It looks like it could be one of the first made; it has the earliest Mitchell Factory location (Los Angeles) and it is an extremely low serial number, it is no. 21?. It has the earlier style leg locking knobs as well. History on tripods is not very likely, however th...
