Chronology of cameras Cinescopie 

Traduction de Eric LeDonne, Etats-Unis

What I thought to be a French "100 shots" happened to be a hardly less rare Cinescopic. Typically, Belgium cameras don't come by very often, and this particular one even less so.

It was made in Brussels, by the firm Cinescopie. Under this brand name, one may find another camera named Photoscopie. Both cameras use 35mm film (issued from the cinema, where their names probably come from), which must be manually prepared using a wooden reel axle.

While apparently handcrafted, the built of the Cinescopic is very robust. As one can see in the photographs below, the darkroom can be removed and can be bundled with the Ibsor shutter and the Labor lens (Ghent). The viewfinder is laid on this bundle, but is removable
