Bought a very nice eyemo camera. It is reflex converted and has another lens mount than original. Who can tell me please which kind of mount it is? Thanks.

Am certain it's a Mitchell standard/NC "quick release" mount.  rather than the factory mount with the 4 screw holes.

 

NYC rental houses made prism reflex conversions of NCs and eyemos in the 60s.  & would replace an original mount with one of these mounts.

The thumb screws would hold the lens in place.   don't use mount a heavy lens in it.

 

There's not much room between the prism and lens flange,  so lens shorter than 50m/m won't fit unless they're retrofocus.  You'll have to use SLR lens w/ adapters.  

Maybe regular 40s & some 35s will fit.
