Are there any Mitchell camera people out there?

Currently I have a set of videos in progress about some of my cameras posted on mitchellCamera.com in the "members articles" section. As a result of a research project, I have also published a series of Mitchell production charts on that site that give serial numbers of Standards, BNC' s and NC' s by year ends that may be of interest to some of you here.

try the "Motion Picture Technology" Facebook group, there is lots of people there who have Mitchell knowledge

I personally only have a self-blimped highly modified Soviet copy of the Mitchell bncr, very different camera than the original but some things like the movement and aperture plate are approximately similar

In a previous workplace we had a fully blimped Mitchell NC in the lobby, which I often examined with curiosity. Beast of a thing, must have taken two strong men just to mount it on its geared head!
