Description

Made by Louis le Prince (1842-1890?) in Paris. This camera took a series of pictures using 16 independent shutters, fired in sequence. The camera was probably only operated with a single glass plate, limiting the sequence to 16 images, although the patent outlines a complex mechanism involving two moving paper films.
