It appears to be a 16mm movie camera, probably a Bolex. That picture was appraently at the Fairmont Mayo Hotel in Tulsa here http://themayohotel1-px.trvlclick.com/index.php

indeed it looks like a 16mm camera. I know the picture but never saw the camera.
Hope someone can give us some more information.

James is right. It is the Bolex H-16EBM introduced 1971, simular to the camera below.

That means someone out there, presumably a fan in Tulsa, has 16mm film of Elvis from that day! Cool, would love to check that out...that is..if the exposures were set properly.

I always thought this series of 8 shots first published in Tunzi's Encore Performance II is very amusing, with James Caughley doing his best to spoil the filming... :D

Typical of show biz people and no doubt Parker. As if they were really going to have their profits cut into by someone who was probably an advanced amateur with pro equipment just shooting for fun.

As much as I would like to see this footage, it probably ended up in some attic and was thrown away in the trash by people who had no idea what was on the images. You'd get a headache when you stopped to ponder how much Elvis footage ended up like that.
But we live in hope. New footage can always still pop up.

You know what's so cool? In the second picture posted by Scott Hayward where Elvis is acknowledging the people waiting outside to see him.

When I worked at Radio in the UK, 'celebrities' 9 times out of 10 would insist on coming in the 'back door' to avoid those that were waiting at the front with their camera's and autograph books. I remember one time in the winter young girls standing outside in the freezing snow waiting to see Robbie Williams. I told him when he was going to leave that there was 'fans' outside who had been waiting to see him for hours and had missed school to be there, about a dozen or so, and that it would be nice if he just went outside for 5 minutes. He looked at me as if it was a stupid request and of course then left through the back. It's always stuck in my mind as being a really shitty thing to do.

Of course Elvis taking time-out for even just a wave is well documented but it remains just one of the things I love about him.

Thankyou all for the replys and information it would be great if the footage did turn up some day, or maybe its just lost to time.
