Two historic cameras will be on display:

The Cunningham Gun Camera ca. 1942.
This 35mm Magnesium alloy bodied camera was co-designed by Greg Toland, ASC and Mr. Cunningham for John Ford's troops in the Pacific theater.

Akeley Sound Camera
Akeley is named for Carl Ethan Akeley, this camera was very popular with newsreel cameramen in the 1930’s and 1940’s. It featured a “silent” movement that far surpassed an unblimped Mitchell or Bell & Howell camera.
