Precision hi-fidelity magnetic recorder for 16 mm movie cameras.  Now you can produce professional quality sound movies with the amazing versatile "Nomad" 7 lb recorder reproducer!  Lip-sync recording at time of take.  Small magnetic recorder that mounts underneath a movie camera.  It is connected and interlocked by a flexible shaft, and is driven by it.  The movie camera drives the Nomad which has a fully transistorized amplifier and uses rechargeable batteries.  For longer runs a DC motor may be attached. The Nomad uses 16 mm magnetic film (instead of tape) at the same rate as the camera for simple editing.   The Nomad provides recording of two separate soundtracks (one each for voice and music) which are automatically mixed when played back.  This method eliminates the need for sound-dubbing, and the duplication of original film where a composite print is required.

The few places we've found reference to this machine is these quotes "collect old odd film sound recorders of the era -- including a Perfectone, Stellavox SM-5 with Rangertone, Nagra II (spring-wind with tube electronics), Nagra SNNs (which I use), Sony EM2NS, Magnasync Nomad, Maihak springwind, and many more."   - source unknown

And this quote from Jeff Kreines "It looks to me like the split-16mm mag that was used in the very uncommon Magnasync Nomad from the early 60s. It was a very odd machine -- it attached to the camera with a flexible shaft, and was driven directly by the camera motor (so it stayed in sync, even with spring-wind cameras)."

Subject: Motion picture props

Hello,
My name is Montgomery Pollack. I own a Motion Picture prop house in Los Angeles Ca. We are working on a new film to be directed by Martin Scorcese, starring Leonardo DeCaprio. It is called "The Aviator" It is about Howard Hughes love of flight. There is a scene that has Hughes using a reel to reel tape recorder in 1947. The director has requested a Rangertone or a Magnecord, Magnetophon or a Ampex 200A. I need to purchase this items. Do you have or know of anybody who might have such an item. It needs to work and be in very good condition. I can be flexible in my timeline. I can use any reel to reel recorder from 1947-1950. If I cannot find such a beast we will just use a Webster wire recorder. Any information would be extremely helpful.
Thank you
Monty

STEFAN KUDELSKI
NAGRA III TAPE RECORDER (1957)

Born in 1929 in Warsaw, Stefan Kudelski was only 10 when his family fled Poland, to Hungary and France, and finally settling in Switzerland in 1943. After completing his college studies, he founded the Kudelski company in 1951 and began creating the Nagra (the name means "will record" in Polish) portable recorder. Designed for high-quality portable recording, the initial Nagra I and II models were driven by a wind-up clockspring mechanism.

The breakthrough came in 1957 with the Nagra III, a compact, 11-pound mono 3.75/7.5/15 ips reel-to-reel deck. With 12 D cell batteries powering its DC servo-controlled motor and Germanium transistor electronics, the Nagra III's performance could rival much larger studio machines. The deck's rugged aluminum chassis and "Modulometer" peak-reading level meter appealed to pros who needed a dependable, near-indestructible location recorder.

With updates, such the addition of Neopilot sync in 1963, the Nagra III soon became the standard for location film recording and received an Award of Merit from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1965. After an 11-year span, the Nagra III was eventually replaced with the Nagra IV in 1968 and the Models 4.2 and stereo IV-S in 1971.
