James Frezzolini was famous in the USA for adapting and upgrading Auricon 16mm newsfilm cameras.With distribution by F&B/CECO Inc (Florman & Babb/Cine Equipment Co) these adapted Auricon 16mm sound-on-film (SOF) cameras were known as Crop Tops.The Bell & Howell EYEMO range of 35mm cameras included a turret version called a 'Spyder'.The version pictured is from the early 1940s and has 1-inch, 2-inch & 3-inch Cooke lenses plus a matching optical viewfinder using a simple but effective system of masks and flip-over optics within the viewfinder tunnel. The basic camera takes 100ft of spool-loaded film, with an additional 400ft magazine and 12v motor attachment.The camera type was used extensively in WW2 for war footage and for newsreel work around the globe. Manufactured by Better Sound of London, this dedicated sound blimp was used for Arriflex 16mm film cameras.
