Re: Mitchell BNC name

My understanding if this term BNC relates to the base NC camera. The NC was the outcome of a less noisy camera designed for Westinghouse newsreel operations which became the "news(reel) camera" or NC. When studios asked for a Mitchell design to replace the add-on blimps made in-house or available fr...

Re: mitchell 16mm motors

Ah, you are the person who bought the Hughes Tool Company camera! That was a good price! Cannot quite make out the serial number 190? Would be from early 1951.

Re: Best Mitchell Geared Head - Worrall of course!

Congrats on joining the Worrell world. Luckily you live in the LA area. If you can pull the other gear set, there should be a number of area machinest shops capable of making matching replacements from scratch. You might need to shop around. You could even find someone who can take it apart and pit ...

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

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).
