The motion picture camera takes a rapid sequence of photographs on strips of film. In contrast to a still camera, which captures a single snapshot at a time, the movie camera takes a series of images; "frame". The frames are later played back in a movie projector, while viewing, a person's eyes and brain merge the separate pictures together to create the illusion of motion. Art Carlon purchased this used camera around 1959 in Junction City, KS. He used the camera in KS and in Waseca County.
