What is the camera in the poster for the Spielberg-produced documentary, "Five Came Back"?

That particular camera looks like a Mitchell 3 strip technicolor camera.

I think that's a rig for "A Matter of Life and Death"- looks a lot like like Jack Cardiff on the right.

That photo of Cardiff seems to be from "The Red Shoes".

Makes sense. Not too many flying cameras in AMOLAD.
I wonder: (1) what J.D. makes of the rigging? There doesn't seem to be a safety line.
                (2) if the Technicolor rep was on the set that day.
