Re: More questions about my camera with pictures

Greg, one additional note, the one lens that I think is a baltar is marked R35. That is a different mount than a BNCR although looks similar.

Re: More questions about my camera with pictures

Greg, These cameras were often used for animation or special effects related shots, including high speed shots.

Re: I need some advice on what to do with a Mitchell Camera

Hi Greg, Just some initial thoughts to your questions. Some places to consider selling; 1) Craig’s list (depending on the area you live. If you’re in Los Angeles or other area where there is film production then Craig’s list is a good option), 2) eBay, 3) a dealer (Richard Bennett is an example but ...

Re: Mitchell BNCR 103

Great pictures! To think that most of the newer camera operators probably don’t even know what a BNCR is! That was a Movie Camera!

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. BNC 290 was sold to Vinten Mitchell in 1961. I'm fairly certain Vinten Vinten Mitchell was a rental company in Europe. Will you be able t...
