)-- iAuctionShop Ltd has been engaged by one of its clients to market a historically important Newman and Sinclair 35mm cine camera. It comes in working order and complete with three lenses, filters, original tripod and fitted case plus four additional magazines again in a fitted case.
Each main part is matched by serial number, (766). This was bought by an Edinburgh photographic dealer from the now-defunct Ferranti plc where it was employed in their film department.
Items included in kit:
· Camera assembly serial number 766 twin clockwork motors and fitted magazine
· 2 inch lens serial number 766
· 4 inch lens serial number 766
· 6 inch lens serial number 766

Newman & Sinclair cameras were the choice of professional filmmakers all over the world. One accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on his ascent of Everest and Stanley Kubrick famously used four during the filming of A Clockwork Orange. Their unusual twin clockwork motors allowed a full 200 feet magazine to be filmed from a single wind.
