Bach-Auricon Pro 600 / 16 mm sound camera


Media Archaeology

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. RV2_319 (BAC 624)).

Manufacturer: Bach Auricon Inc.

Typical news camera from the 1950s and ‘60s, only fading from the scene in the 1970s with the advent of the video camera. This Bach-Auricon could register both optical and magnetic sound, with the latter delivering best sound quality. Due to its relatively noiseless working-mechanism, it was very well suited for general sound recording, though not silent enough for studio recording.
