Christie's South Kensington, Motion Picture Cameras, 16 October 2001, lots 38 and 51.
This camera is similar to the Ernemann Kino II of 1904 and to a camera sold by Fridolin Kretzschmar of Dresden, which was itself a copy of the Kino II. This camera as with the other two took centre-perforated 17½mm. ciné film and was intended for use as both a camera and projector.
