Re: Mitchell Standard S/n 100 Warner Bros for sale

A nice early Mitchell find! It should be noted here that the actual dating and information for this camera has been corrected on the E-Bay listing but not here.

Re: Mitchell DSR16 motor/pwr

Mitt Out Sound, Thought I had a Mitchell motor that could be swapped out with the 24V. After some digging, found will not fit the housing without a lot of machining to convert. Not many of these cameras made. Probably few 110AC motors sold since intended for field use. Not to say somewhere one could...

Re: Mitchell SSR16 #118 for sale with extras

Had it briefly on E-Bay and put it back in the lobby display, I have a variable high amp DC power supply on the bench and as I remember, the camera wanted slightly more than 12VDC to get to 24FPS probab...

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

Great to see these lenses have survived! Could you show the mount these use with the measurement? Must be somewhat unique size to accommodate the format which I'm sure most of us have never seen. Thanks. ED.

Re: Mitchell Cameras; ownership history

This has a standard Mitchell mount? Somehow I cannot imagine a full-blown threestrip Technicolor on this. Let alone with a Moy gear head. No doubt authentic. Just crazy DP's & addled grips. Nevertheless,kool. ED.

Ken Stone is your best bet if you haven't talked to him yet. Are you after looks or actual functionality? ED.
