This was one of the most popular early profesional film cameras. Made by the French firm of Andre Debrie, the Parvo camera had side-by-side film magazines, making it relatively compact. It was hand-cranked and from 1922 onwards was produced with a metal body. This particular camera was modified to make Kinemacolor films.
