willeica Posted March 11, 2021 Share #21 Posted March 11, 2021 Advertisement (gone after registration) Kemper Kombi from the mid 1890s. One of the first all metal cameras. It was also a Graphoscope for viewing developed transparencies. The little door at the back opens to let in light for viewing. Note the patent date of 20 December 1892 engraved at the back. The camera is tiny and I will post another photo showing it beside a Leica for scale. It was not a commercial success and the Box Brownie followed along soon afterwards to conquer the consumer market. Technical details here for those that want them: http://www.submin.com/large/collection/kombi/introduction.htm Welcome, dear visitor!

You need to stick a finger in front of the lens when setting the shutter.
