Feel free to discuss any topic related to the Mitchell Camera. Both 35 mm and 16 mm models are welcomed here. Also consider posting topics of other major motion picture cameras that you feel are important to the development of the Mitchell Camera.

Update: You may have noticed that we have returned to just one category as opposed to dividing the forum into 7 different areas. Apparently, it was an unpopular change and returning to the old format will allow posters to find their submissions more easily.

Video Tour of 1929 Mitchell Standard #167

This is a nice YouTube video walk around of Mitchell Camera #167. Some of the key indicators that this is indeed a Standard and not a NC model is the hand crank! Also of note is the different looking "Adjustable Shutter." Nice to see an actual Mitchell Standard from the silent film era.

Hello Members! Just to clarify the quick ID method of spotting most true Standards, look for the crank!

Interesting tour of a rare camera hanging in there.

But, where in the world did the "Fox sisters" come from alluded to twice in the video?

William Fox started his studio in 1914 which was taken over by Darryl Zanuck in 1935 to become 20th Century Fox. That's the history of the place. No sister(s) ever mentioned.

I know--picky. But on a Hollywood camera history site, would be good to get the Hollywood studios right too. ED
