Hey, I also own a Paramount BNCR but I'm looking for a Mitchell BNCR. If anyone willing to sell, please drop a note. Otherwise, where should I look online for it? eBay? Is it safe buying from eBay?
Are you still looking for a Mitchell BNCR? One of my friends owns one and might be willing to sell it. He lives in CA. Where are you from? The shipping costs must also be considered.

Camera in STAR TREK museum

Thanks Charlie for the info on Burgi from the 1959 ASC mag! I was informed that this particular camera shot the 1960's MISSION:Impossible series at Paramount/Desilu.

Today, I mounted this BNC onto a beautiful Moviolo crab dolly at the about to open STAR TREK: ORIGINAL SERIES SETS museum, run by a friend of mine in Ticonderoga, NY.

Since there is some possibility that it might have also worked occasionally next door on Stages 9 & 10 on the TREK series, it seemed fit to let this camera spend a year or so on display amongst the beautiful recreations of the USS Enterprise's Bridge or transporter room, etc !!! Truth is, we recently moved and I had to place this camera in storage...and with the Ohio humidity, I feared that it would not do well sitting in a case...now, it will be marveled at in its vintage setting..I removed the CP crystal motor and housing and installed a period "can" blimp motor cover and side finder :-)
