Old patents for cameras

For future reference, here’s a link to one of the early patents for a motion-picture camera, also known at the time as a Kinetograph.

Here’s a Kinetoscope, used for viewing movies.

A film-reeling mechanism. A still camera. (I like how the inside of the camera is ridged to reduce reflection.) A panoramic camera. Another motion picture camera. A clockwork camera that sounds like it was intended for time-lapse photography. (And it has a nice illustration of the film-advancing mechanism.) A Motion Picture camera system, again good pictures of the internals. A camera shutter. Another camera shutter.
