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 ...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Great to hear from you Richard. According to the records and the serial number chart I have published on this webpage, ( top tab "serial numbers" on the main page - http://mitchellcamera.com) # 26 is a Standard from 1923. As explained in the charts, GC's and Standards-based on serial numbers-were co...

Re: Lenses for Mitchell

No. Completely different system. They ditched the turret and went with a quick change mount to counter front of the camera noise. That mount is what the PL mount came from. The Panavision mount is essentially the same with a rotation of the locator pin. Afterall, the GC/Standard mount was a 1920 des...

Re: Linwood Dunn/Star Trek

Really grainy shot. Hard to tell except for the flipped left gear wheel and the obvious cables suggest a partially motorised gear head. Oldest inventory was always fodder for modifications. Would bet that gearhead is an old Mole-Richardson. Again, this was all poverty city. Everybody thought this wo...

Re: Linwood Dunn/Star Trek

Sorry for the delay. Busy with studio project. I have a better picture similar to your second shot but it looks like a setup shot since the camera is not plugged in. The in that shot camera is obviously not an NC as the motor is at the back of the camera. An NC is distinguished by the motor being ne...
