If an all-time prize for the most exciting camera designed ever would be existing the winner would be none other than A. Briois, a French camera maker based in Paris. The camera "Revolver Photographique" (or "Thompson's revolver camera", designed by Thompson, whoever that was) was resembling more of a Colt than of a camera. But the cylinder had not to be loaded with bullets but with four wet glass plates. A formidable 1:2/40mm Petzval lens served as "barrel". It was an early solution for achieving an image series in a short time. In 1862!


  • A. Briois
  • 4 Rue De La Douane
