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.

Covers of old American Cinematographer magazines

Postby mitchellbnc » Thu Aug 07, 2014 11:29 am

Hello members! Over the years I have seen some great classic productions shot of Mitchells on the cover of American Cinematographer.

Sorry but these are ratty tatty scans, mostly from eBay auctions, but I thought I would share a few as many of us love them so much. Now, if you want to see some high quality scans of American Cinematographer covers, go over to the thread called "Details of American Cinematographer Covers".

This thread contains the down and dirty scans and barely worth clicking the enlarge button. Again, apologies (but still fun to look at).

Thanks for the covers shots Theodore. My collection is small but a have a few to share. I've always been disappointed that there wasn't more in depth documentation about the actual use of the Mitchell camera in these articles. It may have been that it was just considered a standard "tool" so what was there to discuss? I duhno.

Hi ya once again! I just love these covers and their vintage look Makes me feel connected to old Hollywood and how they used to make studio style motion pictures. Using a big blimped Mitchell of course. Ok, maybe an occasional Micthell NC when not filming close up sync sound.

Hi Randy. Thanks for sharing the A.C. Mitchell covers. I see you mostly like the 60's covers. If you don't mind, I would like to shift gears down to the 40's and earlier. Here are 3 from 1942.
