Description

In 1886, whilst working in New York, Louis le Prince (1841-1890?) invented a 16-lens camera intended to record movement as alternate sets of eight pictures on two rolls of film side-by-side. These images, the only known images taken by that camera, were probably made on a glass plate and not film. Two years later, in Leeds, le Prince devised a single-lens camera that recorded movement in a series of pictures on a roll of film.
