Re: JUST PURCHASED A MITCHELL NC???

Chris, I’m sure Ed will expand in this question but I’ll chip in a bit. The US military had white cameras but also black cameras. The first camera I bought, the military camera, was a smooth black. I’m told the white pained cameras filmed nuclear tests and should be avoided as they probably have som...

Re: Mitchell Beauty shots from Seawood Photo

Chris, I’m a member here and I would certainly enjoy seeing additional photos of your camera! It’s always fun and I always seem to learn new things. Ed is a great source of information. I’ve never been in the film industry but had an interest since I was a kid playing with my windup Kodak Brownie Ca...

Okay, I was asking thinking it was a Mitchell NC, which this website has sales record info for.

Very Nice Boyd! What's the serial number of your NC? Do you have any history on it? Mark

Re: My pride and joy is Mitchell BNCR #198

Hello Scope235! I own a BNCR that was originally purchased by Paramount. I was told mine worked on the Mission Impossible TV series of the 1960s. I research the history of my cameras. Can I ask how you learned of the Mission Impossible history for your camera? Thanks and welcome to the website, Mark

Re: Mitchell Camera drying rack PH-42

If it interests you, yeah. It's one of those things when there is little/no market interest so the saying "its worth what someone will pay" applies here. You never know, you may even find someone who will pay you twice that!

Re: Mitchell BNC

Newsreel is the more common acceptable term but I have yet to see any documentation as to what Mitchell intended. I'm not really sure that news organizations purchased NCs for newsgathering, which would be the reason to call it "newsreel".

Anyone have any documentation, early ads???
