The film boxes are on the outside of this camera. The change from
having the film boxes on the outside to having the film boxes on the
inside of the camera body was one of the great innovations in the
evolution of film cameras. Like so many things from the Genesis period,
the innovations seem so simple and blatantly obvious to us now. In
the period of movie camera infancy, making the camera a larger box
with the film boxes inside the camera body was quite a welcome innovation.
It has a piece of wood missing from the lower left front corner of
the camera body and sliver from the rear magazine edge and normally
I have a fine cabinet maker put a small slice of wood in for the missing
piece. On this particular camera I think it is so rare and valuable
that I may not do that.
