As can be seen from my photograph, 1950s newsreels used a mixture of Wall, 2709s and Spyder Eyemo cameras plus W.E. 618 mics. The crews look very neat and tidy with additional trilby hats. The whole ensemble courtesy of myself and the NETFLIX costume dept. This was all for a Netflix production called THE CROWN (streaming Nov 2016). Although I collect and preserve movie and tv equipment, I just love it when I trundle along to the set and display my precious toys. Oh, and the 2709 is a wooden repro, same guy who made all my model cameras. A whizz!
