    Unknown cameras

    My friend sent me a pic of these that he has. He said he didn't know what they are(he isn't savy in the medium). Anyone recognize what they are?

    Dunno but I want them lol!

    Looks like a sheet film camera, a roll film folder, and the middle one looks like a mini 8mm movie camera.

    They're interesting aren't they? I'm a youngin' both in the world of photography and the real word so I don't recognize that stuff at all. He's giving them to me so if no one knows I'll find out when I get them soon enough... just seeing if any of the experts here have a good eye.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    You'd need better images to identify them.

    There were quite a few similar to the forst from a handful of manufacturers in UK/Europe. There will be makers names on all of them as well as on the lenses/shutters.

    The camera in the middle looks like a Haneel Tri-Vision 3-D camera made in California around 1953. Plastic and aluminum. The one on the left looks to me that it might be a hand-made, or modified camera. And on the right, a fairly typical folder of the 30s to 50s era.

    the one in the middle looks like
    a movie camera ...
    2 lenses swing / bayonet mount
    the thing in the middle between the lenses is a shutter speed dial

    if you have the camera handy can you read what the lenses say ?
    if my memory is right, a wide angle 8mm lens is 12.5mm and a normal is 24mm and a tele is around 36mm
    some don't have separate fstop rings and they focus by changing the fstop
    ( there are distances and fnumbers sort of next to eachother )

    if there are any numbers on the edges of the center dial ..
    film cameras have the usual b-t-5-10-25-50-100 ( or a variation of that )
    movie cameras have something like 12-16-18-24-32-48-64 ( or something similar )

    have fun with your treasures!

    The one on the right looks like an Agfa Isolette, the wooden one looks like a Tropical Version of the Goerz Anschütz Ango or a Zeiss Ikon Nettel Deckrullo which usually has different struts, the struts are more like the Ango.

    A small correction the wooden camera is an Ernemann-Tropen-Klappkamera (I am 98% certain) compare it with the Ernemann Tropen Klapp on this page http://www.dresdner-kameras.de/firme...en/firmen.html

    Neat. Any idea what they'd be worth?
