Re: Mitchell Beauty shots from Seawood Photo

Chris, Glad to he of help. I too was closed out of working with these cameras by time period and budget restrictions. I gravitated to video as a producer and moved into the Avid world really early. (Dancing pixels) Later, I found a few of these cameras in need of TLC. Being of a mechanical bent, I t...

Re: Mitchell Beauty shots from Seawood Photo

All of this does not go to negate that Navy chronograph camera 397 is not a worthy piece especially with all the high value accessories. It is just unfortunate that the camera was misrepresented - as original unmodified NC's are rare. Another factoid: NC's are taller than Standards with the faceplat...

Re: Mitchell Beauty shots from Seawood Photo

I have had discussions in the past about this listing with the folk at Seawood. First. If this is NC 397, Company records show that canera to have been sold to a person (Tsiu Yung Lee) in China on 9/2/47. By the pictures, I figure this camera has been repainted. Second. Company records indicate that...

Re: BNC #17 looking for any info

Gcoutts. My sincere apologies about the origin of BNC#17. The information I had back in 2017 was from a magazine article that has been since found to have a number of errors. In checking the actual records we now have, BNC#17 was actually a studio camera purchased by Universal Pictures Corp. On June...

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.
