The Auricon Pro 600 was one of a line of 16mm sound-on-film movie cameras produced by the Bach Auricon Inc company of California. The Auricon was a lightweight 'single system' camera whereby the sound was recorded within the camera itself, initially as a optical track and lattery, magnetic. The Auricon camera became popular for television newsfilming, notably used during the Vietman War.
The Auricon RA 30 07 amplifier was designed as a battery- operated location sound mixer unit, for use with the Auricon range of 16mm sound-on-film cameras. Our example (ex ITN) was for use with optical sound recording cameras.
