Re: Mitchell tripod

Tiffany, Yes, please get that light off. As to price guidelines, the best possible would be with the pan/tilt handle and a Mitchell badge on the wood tripod. Current and past sales put a value of between $600 & $800. There is one currently on E-bay for $1300 that has all the essentials. No badge on ...

Mitchell SSR16 #118 for sale with extras

I have decided that my SSR16 (featured as the last camera in my Member's Article videos: " Blimped cameras that made the movies".) After reviewing my camera collection, this camera simply does not fit and is being offered for sale. The package includes a functioning same era transistorized Auricon e...

Re: MItchell BNC Blimp

Sorry, assumed was #14. Yes better shot of viewfinder. Assuming older expected to see the clamp-on rig. Yep, lens mount, shutter connections, motor, rackover mod. and some finesse. But an NC not a bad start. Sad no cast number on/in blimp casing. Other camera: 298 looks to be in sweet condition. ED.

Re: MItchell BNC Blimp

Just saw this. The motor blimp box is for a Cinema Products replacement crystal motor. BNC #14 would be a Warners camera from a batch bought in 1938. You state you have the sidefinder cams but do not see the bracket on the sidefinder that is necessary to make the cams function. As this is an early m...

Re: Sam Dodge YouTube demo of 1922 Mitchell Standard #5

Mark, Hope you're still visiting. Two questions. First, what is the number on your 1931 camera? From the list I have been collating over the past 5 years, it would have to be between 336 and 400 to fit the curve. Would help to know. Also, it appears that the Standard continues to be made after that ...

Re: lenses

These are hard to find. The story goes, a few years ago, the Chinese discovered these old lenses -- the cells, easy and cheap to put into new mounts for modern cameras. The mounts and barrels in large quantities were tossed and probably melted down to become lawn furniture parts or some such. As har...

Re: Stiff Movement on Mitchell Standard (advice)

Mark, Thanks for the info on Standards having sleeves instead of bearings. Stand corrected on earlier statement as have heard it both ways in the past. Earlier, I estimated this camera #146 be from 1926 based on info I had available and presented in the post. Would be interested in an actual dating ...

Re: Stiff Movement on Mitchell Standard (advice)

On the missing flywheel.

Standard practice in converting for animation was to remove the flywheel because in single frame it might continue rotating and cause an extra frame or stutter. Elsewhere on the site an earlier post about Standards confirms this.
