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.

Dimensions are 53.5 x 76 x 129mm.

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.
