Stereo cine camera, 1890.

Stereo cine camera, 1890.
4 0 c m
actual image size: 25cm x 32cm


This camera was designed by William Friese-Greene (1855-1921) and produced in asociation with A Lege and Co. It has many of the characteristics of the succesful moving picture cameras of 1896, but was unable to take photographs at sufficient speed to produce a true moving picture effect. Having invented a means of projecting sequential photographs by lantern slides in the 1880s, Friese-Greene is hailed by some as the English inventor of cinematography, although he did not propose perforated strips of film for either photography or projection.
