Walt Disney

Mitchell NC Camera

Stock #101831

A classic Mitchell 35mm motion picture camera used by Walt Disney Studios for various productions. Developed in 1932 by Mitchell Corporation, the NC camera became a standard piece of equipment for Hollywood movie productions. Mitchell records indicate that this specific NC240 camera was sold to “Walt Disney” on 30 November, 1944. It was likely used on Disney live-action films of the 1940s to 1960s, before other makes of camera took over.

This vintage Mitchell NC camera, serial number 240, includes a 400’ Mitchell film magazine and a Mitchell motor. The motor is paired with its original carrying case, marked for the Walt Disney camera department. The camera was later modified for visual effects usage with an updated lens mount. It is no longer on its rack-over base, is untested condition, shows wear to the outer finish from use and is in fair overall condition.
