Re: Mitchell BNC Camera Construction -Personal Observations

Hello Max
Yes
Mitchell BNC 356 had no slate mechanism at all.
BNC 356 rolled off the assembly line at the Mitchell factory in Dec 1967, according to Mitchell foreman
Chuck Mallory.
And in 1990 every BNC I tore down from an old Panavision auction had some kind of slate mechanism.
Cheers Bruce
