abc.jpg Hi,

does anybody recognize the camera being used in this photo. Which, btw shows
Jack Johnson shooting in New York for his Surf-Movie Thicker Than Water.

Thx,

Markus

Definately a Bolex; a Rex-5 or an SBM, to be more specific.

could it be an EBM or EL Mk I with an older wind-up style door on it ?

definately has the 400' saddle and the little plastic memo sleeve thing, but the door looks like it has the viewfinder latches ...

Yes, it could be an EBM, but I don't see the two lamps in the upper right corner (above the label), only a single screw, just like on the Rex-5 and SBM. The EL is a bit bulkier on the right side, and the label is different also (at least on the models I saw). I could be wrong, it's hard to make out the details on this photo, but it's a nice puzzle, that's for sure. :)
