Hi All,

Can anyone out there identify or offer some info on this Newman & Sinclair movie camera.

Can't find it anything on google.

It came with a Cooke Lens and x2 Angenieux lenses which suggests the camera was of a good standard.

Thanks in advancenewman3.jpg

It looks like a reflexed spinning-mirror adaptation, not the usual version. I wonder if it's an instrumentation camera with external drive- there don't seem to be any external controls or a winding crank- but those don't usually need to be reflexed.

According to Raimondo-Souto's "Motion Picture Photography: A History, 1891 to 1960", Newman Sinclair produced a mirror reflex, pin registered 35mm camera in 1960 called the P400. It had a triple turret, took 400 ft mags and ran on 12V. This looks like a 100 ft version, you can see model number is P100.

 

Could be quite rare.
