Re: Mitchell copy - made by Seiki Co, Tokyo Japan

David,

Chosei is a DP in Japan. This is just something he knew. No research involved. I will pass on your request but these are pretty private persons in this space. He may be interested in seeing your pix.

Re: Mitchell copy - made by Seiki Co, Tokyo Japan

From my information source, this appears to be a pre Ww2 camera. There were several Mitchell copies, One is Seiki Kogaku (精機製作所), and the other one is Doi Kosaku-jo (土井工作所). The Doi was a rip-off like the post war Russian cameras. Seiki Kogaku ones had produced pre-war era the most, were the famous ...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Guy, Fun thing about the fact the Newall being so nicely fitted to the Mitchell. The Newall camera is the result of Mitchell refusing the Pound as payment. When it was found that Mitchell has not filled for copyright fot the NC camera in England, the Rank organization decided to make their own versi...

Re: Mitchell Standard #125 Oct 4 1928

Guy, Yes, interesting camera. Where are you located? Probably a number of people would be interested in this. If it has been sitting for a long time, may need some work. The government bought most Mitchell Standards after 1930 when Mitchell introduced the NC's. Would be happy to talk more ss this wo...

Re: Mitchell Hi-Hat No.850 | Model THA-I-B

Nice collector's piece. The badge is always a plus. Unfortunately the market is very slim these days. To display a prized camera you still beed a period head to mount on it which cuts down the applications. As a working piece, most new film/video people rarely use or know what a highhat is. Handheld...

Re: Mitchell Standard #414 for SALE (SOLD)

Danita, If you are looking to buy a Mitchell, be advised they are getting to be pricey especially with lenses and accessorues. If or when you find one, always ask for the serial number and look it up on our serial number chart. These cameras may look old but the basic design was still the same into ...

As explained in the charts, GC's and Standards-based on serial numbers-were co...
