PROTOTYPE - 150 unknown movie cameras

Around 150 movie cameras that were never built. Ingenious designs that were too expensive to mass produce. Or were conceived too early. Or too late. Models that could take photos and filming movies. Super 8, Single-8, 16mm, 8mm. Intelligent design, opulent functions. Inventions between 1935 and 1980. A last look at these analog treasures before they are forgotten. Interviews with constructors and designers. Jürgen Lossau: PROTOTYPE, English/German, coffee-table book, 210 x 297mm, all pages fully colored, 180 pages.
