Re: I need your help

Steffen, No, the number 290 is the serial number. The model number is BNC (which I'm told stands for Blimped Newsreel Camera). I have records from Mitchell sales.

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...

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
