Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

...also it’s now certain this is actually your camera as it’s not only a Warner Brothers film (original owner of BNC10), but it was filmed in England!

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

John, I found the other photo I had of BNC 10!!!! At least i believe it is #10 since it’s painted on the side door. I keep good records and did indicate I had 2 photos.

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Hello Martin,

I checked my personal records and did not find any information on your camera. I actually don’t have much of anything from Walt Disney Productions.

The pic I have shows it was a Warner Brothers production and has "10" painted on the side of the blimp. I can't tell, however your bli...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

John, I have not had a chance to look at my records yet to see what I had previously found on BNC 10. You could also search on eBay and the Internet.
