Cinematograph Camera No. 2, 35mm cine camera with continuous feed, as used in 1896, made and used by Robert Paul.

Robert Paul stood outside St Paul's Cathedral with this camera filming Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee procession in June 1897.

This camera has what is believed to be the first panning mechanism. By turning the handle, the camera rotates smoothly on its stand, capturing a steady side-to -side shot. Although it was probably designed to capture scenes of the Jubilee procession as it marched past, no footage exists that shows the mechanism in action.
