I'm in the final year of my film studies, but I've mixed my degree up with a lot of production classes for theater or film. I'm currently taking an advanced prop-building class and for my final project I've chosen to build a replica of the legendary B&H 2709 camera, used by Chaplin, among others.
I have no access to one, obviously, so anyone who has first hand experience, knows any resources, or, perhaps even owns one, I would very much like to get in contact with them.
Feel free to PM me on these boards.
I know there must be some antique collectors out there on the boards!
