| Agfa Box 44,
photographed for a 360° view consisting of 36 images at 10° intervals.
The common box camera is wildly associated with Kodak and the ubiquitous Box Brownie, but many other companies produced simple Box cameras in prodigious quantities. Agfa Gevaert was one such and this Box 44 of theirs exhibits some thought. The film transport and holding assembly is withdrawn in this rotating image to show that the lens is built into that assembly, allowing it to be cleaned very easily, and keeping lens to film plane distance stable. Also the front is easily removed, as here, to allow the waist level finder mirrors to be cleaned. This also allows the over centre rotary shutter to be seen, common to nearly all box cameras.
Start the image spinning by putting your cursor over the "Spin" side of the image, you can pause the animation in any position by touching the "Pause" side.
