Description

The camera is shown here mounted on a rolling spider. Technicolor, introduced in 1915, is regarded as the finest colour motion picture proces. It evolved through four versions, culminating in the three-colour camera. This used a beam splitter and red, green and blue filters to record colours as primaries on three separate monochrome films. Subsequently, each negative was reproduced in its appropriate dye colour on the print.
