Improved Phantasmagoria Lantern

A black tin Improved Phantasmagoria Lantern with handle and crooked chimney.

Carpenter marketed his Improved Phantasmagoria Lantern as a consumer version of the famous Phantasmagoria lantern shows that simulated ghost and spirit projections during the late 1700 and early 1800s. The name is a misnomer since Phantasmagoria refers to a type of projection rather than a type of lantern. The handle on the lantern was meant to accompany a larger professional magic lantern show with a small, mobile projector, or for small scale uses.

Lampascope Boule

The Lampascope Boule is a circular magic lantern projector with a hole at the base. This consumer lantern was meant to be placed on top of an oil lamp for home use. Lampascope projectors were elaborately painted with bright colours. This lantern is very faded but has remnant of red on the lens, and blue on the chimney.

Minolta Autopak 400-X

Item is an automatic snapshot camera for photographs on 126 film cartridges. The Minolta model is higher quality than many of the inexpensive, basic cameras for 126 cartridges. While the operation of the camera is simple, the engineering design is complex. One feature of most Minolta Autopak cameras was the ability to keep a flashcube mounted on the camera at all times, allowing the camera to authomatically fire the flash if needed. This later became common with electronic flashes, but was unusual during the age of flashcubes and x-cubes.

This model is a 400-X: cartridge loading camera with automatic slenium metering and Rokkor f2.8/38mm glass lens with fixed focus. No batteries required for meter or flash.

Minolta Hi-Matic AF2

Item is an automatic, auto-focus 35mm camera with built-in flash and electronic shutter. The Hi-Matic AF2 was the first 35mm rangefinder camera with active infrared auto-focus, which uses an infrared beam to determine the distance of objects in the viewfinder. It was launched in 1981 as the successor of Minolta's Hi-Matic AF. The lens is a Minolta 38mm f/2.8 4-element with a 46mm filter thread, and angle of view of 58°. The focus of the camera is 1 meter to infinity and is auto-focus is activated when the shutter is slightly pressed. The viewfinder is bright and features parallax-correction marks. A 10-second self-timer is mounted beside the lens. The camera has a built-in "warning system" that automatically beeps to notify the user of low light, so they might turn on the flash. The camera's warning system also beeps at the user should the image be out of the focus or flash range. This was one of the last of the high-quality Hi-Matic series manufactured by Minolta. Dimensions are 53.5 x 76 x 129mm.

Deep Sea

Deep sea exploration involves diving at depths greater then humanly possible without a submersible vehicle, or greater than 1000 feet below the surface. In this series are moving images of hydrothermal vents, deep sea sharks, the sinking of the Russian nuclear submarine Komsomollets, and ocean floor ecology. Also featured are items that explore the process of both underwater exploration and underwater cinematography in deep sea settings. Recordings are of varying stages of production from raw footage to full productions. Some of the recordings are in Russian.

Barton dive ext. camera on sub ; #15

Recorded in the Atlantic Ocean from Harbor Branch Oceanographic. Otis Barton joins the Johnson Sea Link Sub Crew for a commemorative dive. Barton was a pioneer underwater explorer and the designer of the bathysphere (1930). This recording is one of four that documents the conversation between Barton and the other diver during the dive. The view is solely of inside the submersible and of the two men. The bathysphere was designed by underwater explorers Otis Barton and William Beebee and took its first plunge in 1930. A bathysphere consists of a steel sphere with small circular windows of fused quartz. Inside it are the required oxygen tanks. During dives, these vessels were lowered into the water with cables and chains. During its first year, the bathysphere design could already dive to depths of 1,426 feet, two years later breaking records at 3,028 feet. Many discoveries about the deep sea were made from the confines of these vessels.

The Heritage Camera Collection is comprised of cameras, mainly from the Wilhem E. Nassau Camera Collection, the Irving G. Rumney fonds, and several other small, individual donations.

This collection traces the evolution of the tools of popular photography from the turn of the nineteenth century to the current digital age. Many of the cameras were manufactured by Kodak Canada or Eastman Kodak, but there are also examples from many other manufacturers, such as: Ernst Leitz, Minox, Polaroid, Nikon, Rollei, Mamiya, Olympus, Contax, and several companies that pre-date, and were eventually amalgamated into Kodak, including the Rochester Optical Company.

Items in the collection are arranged in series according on their form and function; the categories are based on the research and publications of Michel Auer and Todd Gustavson, and often overlap chronologically.

Series are as follows:

Early cameras
Dry plate cameras
Field cameras
Folding (bellows) cameras
Box and snapsot roll film cameras
Detective cameras
Panoramic cameras
Miniature and sub-miniature cameras
Single lens reflex cameras
Twin lens reflex cameras
35mm cameras
In-camera processing (instant) cameras
Point and shoot caemras
One-time-use cameras
Digital and pre-digital cameras
Toy and promotional cameras
Motion-picture cameras
Video cameras
