PURSE CONCEALS CAMERA FOR SECRET SNAPSHOTS (Jul, 1936)
PURSE CONCEALS CAMERA FOR SECRET SNAPSHOTS
Hidden within a bronze holder attached near the clasp of a woman’s purse, a tiny “candid camera” may be operated secretly to snap unposed photographs while the purse is held unobtrusively in the lap or against the body. For less furtive shots, the purse can be held at eye level and the camera trained on the subject through a small, collapsible view finder. Equipped with a high-speed lens, the instrument uses standard thirty-five-millimeter movie-camera film.
