Mitchell S35R Mark II 35mm reflex film camera


This is the classic Hollywood film camera totally refursbished and updated with state of the art electronics. Still the best camera for effects work because it has 2 pin-registered action (resulting in very little film weave - a steady image so very suited to visual effects layers and post-production matting) and it can be motion controlled, so it is a favourite amongst animators and specialist film makers.

  • Frame rates continuously variable up 128fps in 0.001 steps using the Lynx Robotics C-50 motor which is also motion control compatible - one can lock frames to camera moves. The Lynx motor also features a jog forward/reverse switch for monitor phasing - if one is shooting video monitors it allows the black line to be phased out.
  • Alternatively, the Lynx motor can be swapped for our Fries crystal-locked motor.
  • Unique video assist is a very high quality Sony 3CCD Power HAD 1/2" chip camera.
  • Orientable Fries viewfinder.
  • QuickSync 1 Intervalometer Controller available too - allows exposures from 1/8 to 22 seconds, intervals from 1 second to 99 minutes with a capping shutter output too.
  • 2 x 400' magazines as standard (others available).
  • BNCR lens mount - a set of matched Canon Superspeed primes and other lenses available too.
