well - lumiere used their cameras as projectors and viceversa.
i do have an old hand crank camera from 1926. basically of course you
can build the camera out of the toy-handcranked projector. just make it
lightsafe and build external spools on it (for longer record-time - you
could use a filmcan - just make something to fix it to the camera - best
is to use whats fitable) or use inside the box the 100' daylight spools
for 35mm. you can find them on ebay or at www.wittner-cinetec.de
their are some mechanical stuff like sharpness, hmm just put a spiral
around the objective with and on the otherside smth. like a wheel which
presses on it. the rest you only have to make it lightsafe. i can send
you some pictures of the camera if i find time, allright?!
but generally the malteser-cross is the heart of the cinema, as long as
it rolls you can record film. a yes ... the shutter, you have to put it
in front of the picturewindow, not like at a projector behind it. Once i
thought about making my own metallparts like the 35 handcranked to build
in some secret ideas ;) but lets die on another day.
