This clockwork-driven camera, manufactured by the Paris firm of Andre Debrie, was a multi-purpose instrument combining the functions of still and cine camera, printer and projector. Though it took only five metres of film (lasting 17 seconds) it had a profesional use, particularly by newsreel cameramen pirating events to which a rival company had exclusive rights.
