Period:   from the full 1940's to the beginning of 1970's
Type:   MOVIE CAMERAS

An original and rare (most standard Mitchells were converted to animation or used as the mechanism for re-engineered Panavision cameras) this 35mm STANDARD MITCHELL (no. 146)was purchased originally by RCA Photophone at the end of 1928. This camera was used at Hollywood's RKO studios during the 'Golden Era' of the 1930s and 1940s. The camera can be hand-cranked to recreate 'silent movies' and fitted also with a 'Peanut' 24V DC motor and a 1000ft magazine for 'sound' shooting. Turret set of original Baltar lenses. Hire of this unique camera possible, but under very strict conditions.
