of vintage movie cameras, projectors, precinema, etc.

Part 1

A - C

The following is a list of manufacturers of vintage cinematographic equipment, with some of the apparatus they marketed. It is by no means complete, but a basis for expansion.
Presently you will find the country of origin, year of manufacture and size. The ACR number, if mentioned, refers to the Peter Ariel's Cinematography Register listing. I hope to expand it with more images and data on other apparatus. In general this list closes in the year 1965 with the introduction of super 8mm to replace regular 8mm. For movie cameras after the introduction of Super 8 please refer to Anssi Puistot's Super 8 camera list

I have listed apparatus, I could not find the manufacturer of, under Various

In many cases I am not sure of the years of manufacture. For your guidance I have made guesses with a question mark. Of course all data are tentative.

I'm always grateful for any info you can supply to correct or update this list. Also let me know if an image does not open. Email to: but delete the word NOSPAM from the address.

If you like to find out more about a certain apparatus, click on the first letter of the name of the manufacturer to go to the relative section of this list. If the apparatus is not listed look for a model number near to it for an approximate date. As models often have a different name than that of the manufacturer you might also search with the Ctrl+F keys. I have often listed apparatus under their model name, though.
As for additional images you might search on Google Images. On YouTube you may find clips with demonstrations of apparatus of the major makes. Also many images may be had from Kamera Daten Bank Deutsche Museen

Possibly a manual is available. Click here.

    Bata AS, Czechoslovakia

    • Bata Projector 16mm with lens Polar Optikotechna, Prerov, 1.6/35mm (According to Meopta: "This is actually a Suchánek projector, model Popular, which had a exchangeable projection head system for formats 8, 9.5 and 16 mm and includes a diapositive slide head. The Bata company ordered a significant number of these projectors to be built for advertising and training purposes, however, there was an obstacle to production in that there was insufficient production capacity and, therefore, after mutual agreement, these projectors were assembled under licence directly by the Bata company. Which apparently occurred at the end of the 1930s. Another viewers commented: Bata (pronunciation of t is tj together, like Batja) used apparatus for advertising, and in the factory in Zlín made 800 boxis with these projectors inside and screens sized 45 x 35 cm, rear projection. Boxes was then placed with Bata movies into Bata shops windows. 3 similar projectors have different relief only: Popular - for ordinary sale; Scholar - cheaper only for school; Bata - for Bata's factory only.
