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.

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.

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.
