Demeny Gaumont 35mm Chronophotograph Camera/Projector, 1896.
In 1896 Georges Demeny redesigned his 1893 camera for Léon Gaumont’s company so it could be adapted for projection, and would take perforated film. The resulting Demeny-Gaumont Chronophotograph 35mm camera projector has a beater movement, invented by Demeny, which could be used for either taking or projecting films. It could project 60mm films, meaning the projected pictures were more detailed.
