Lumière was an important French film maker from 1893 until they were absorbed by swiss Ciba in 1961. In 1982 the company became Ilford France.

It was founded by Charles Antoine Lumière (1840-1911). His sons Auguste and Louis Lumière were the first who made a presentation of a modern kind of movies. With their movies they won fame as cinematography pioneers, but didn't stay in that business. In the beginning 20th century they developed a new photographic process, a "Procédé de Photographie en Couleur" (patented 1903), probably the most successful color processing method of its time. They began to produce film plates for that process, the Autochrome plates. They made cameras from the end of the 1920s to 1961. Around the year 1970 cameras were sold with the Lumière name, but they were not designed or made by the company.
