    hi everyone, now that I have a bit of time on my hands I'll be building a far better "paper film cinematographe" for my spring project that can at least take 30 seconds of footage. I will keep everyone posted, as I hope to have it completed before the summer. I'm currently drawing up the schematics & working out the gear ratios to grind. Any suggestions on what type of hard wood to use? Cherry? Oak? I'm shooting for a dark lacquer finish with brass fittings.

    Good to hear you are still on the project. I can only offer the thumbs up and I am curious to see the results.

    Hi,
    Leo Ulrich Kamm was my Grandfather.

    Go to this link

    http://humanities.exeter.ac.uk/news/...226570_en.html


    It's tremendous and exciting news that you should build a kammatograph.

    Incidently my brother Blue (Laurence) has an original machine.

    Welcome to the club Stephen.

    It is not the first time a descendant of someone of importance for photography shows up after his predecessor being talked about here. I like that.

    Camera Number 2

    Hello, I’m back in school now and have had enough time to return to the Kammatograph project. As an update, I am still in R&D phase to build a true working model of a Kammatogrpah that uses 30cm glass disks and forms consecutive images in a spiral. In the meanwhile, however, I needed a platform to test various mechanical set-ups (lenses, intermittent mechanisms, etc. ). Hence this latest creation. I built it using some old gears I had around the house and plywood, stained "white oak" flavour. Essentially, it is a big brother to my original scratch-built camera. I’d like to thank Stephen Kamm (Mr. Leo Kamm’s grandson) for his previous post and also Barry S. for his advice on building a larger machine that eliminated having to cut the photographic paper. Tech Specs: f1.9/13mm Kodak Ektanon Lens with lens caps that have stops (not shown). ~90° shutter/ approx. 12 FPS/ 81 6mm x 3.3mm Images on 4x5 inch photo paper. Also, if anyone has any information on this particular lens, or where I can find out more about it, I’d be grateful. Total cost of project under $20.
