Pathescope "H" clockwork driven 9.5mm cine camera
The Pathescope “H” is a clockwork driven cine camera circa 1948 and comes with a cassette of film in situ. Unable to say whether the film is exposed or not but it was noted that the name Martin was inscribed on the cassette. Using 9.5mm film and a single sprocket drive interlocking with a central oblong sprocket hole beneath each image, allowed for a bigger percentage of the film to be available to record on (roughly about 1/3 of what is available on a 35 mm film with sprockets on both sides of the image area). The clockwork function on this cine camera has been tested and works at a steady rate until it is just about run down, when slowing is noted. Sold as a collectable but there is no obvious reason that it couldn’t be serviced and brought back to full working order. The outer case shows paint loss due to use but on obvious signs of abuse. Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We do this to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair.
