The minnigraph camera was manufactured by Levy-Roth of Berlin, Germany in circa 1915. Reportedly it was the first European camera to take 18x24 mm (half-frame) exposures on special 35mm film cassettes. The camera is constructed of metal, covered in leather and shaped similar to a movie camera. I was fitted with either a 54 mm f3.5 Minnigraph anastigmat or an f3 Pentagraph lens and a simple instantaneous shutter. It featured a folding wire frame focusing viewer.
