Another very early camera. It has a wonderful dark Mahogany body and
is a real magnificent looking camera. Mechanically this camera is
easy to crank and has a beautiful set of brass gears and brass flywheel.
It has three places for the crank to be inserted. The camera can be
cranked forward at 8 frames per revolution of the crank, reverse at
8 frames per crank and forward at one frame per crank. This has to
be one of the earliest special effects cameras as it will do a good
variety of effects because of this. There is a viewing tube down the
center of the camera, between the magazines, that allows for critical
focus viewing right on the film. The film side of the box is gorgeous
and transports film without a scratch. It is in fine working condition
and would shoot film today.
