Feel free to discuss any topic related to the Mitchell Camera. Both 35 mm and 16 mm models are welcomed here. Also consider posting topics of other major motion picture cameras that you feel are important to the development of the Mitchell Camera.

Update: You may have noticed that we have returned to just one category as opposed to dividing the forum into 7 different areas. Apparently, it was an unpopular change and returning to the old format will allow posters to find their submissions more easily.

BNC #17 looking for any info

Postby gcoutts » Thu Aug 31, 2017 5:13 pm

Would anyone have any info on this camera, what I have is a complete set of blimps assembled as a prop camera but would love to know something about its history. It was last used as a prop in a Movie of the Week about Annette Funicello.

Did you look at the top left serial numbers tab to find the year for the camera first? I take it there is no camera or motor so our registry is not viable.
My records show #17 to be one of a number of lend-lease cameras sent to the USSR and made in 1939. That doesn't seem a likely thing to be back here but could happen. There should be a number on the inside of the casting. ED.
