Kemper Kombi SubminiatureCamera and Graphoscope Having collected classic cameras for over thirty five years I have decided it is time to thin my collection down. The Kemper Kombi was introduced by Alfred C. Kemper of Chicago in 1893. It is a most attractive little camera of all brass construction with an oxidized exterior with diagonal stripes. The back of the camera is fitted with a circular cover, which when removed and the camera loaded with the developedtransparencyfilm, becomes a viewer or graphoscope. It took 25 exposures on a specially made Kodak film.The dial seen at the top center of front of the camera is used to arm the shutter. It can be set to two positions. The center position is used for time exposures. The farthest position sets the shutter for instantaneous exposures. The shutter release is a spring lever which when pressedreleases it from the notched latch, activating the shutter. Different aperture plates can be mounted over the lens opening to adjust the exposure. Bearing in mind that the oxidized finish is easily damaged, this particular example is in quite good cosmetic condition. The shutter is in good working order and as far as I know the camera is generally complete.The film chamber has a circular mask rather than the standard square one, but whether the camera would have originally come with both I do not know. Also there is only one aperture plate, but again I am not sure how many there should be. Comes complete with makers box.
