Home Film Camera

1970s

As the popularity of television, along with the cinema and movie industry, so too did the desire of people to produce their own home-made movies.

 

The technological advances in moving pictures lead to the creation of hand-held cine cameras that used 8mm film.

 

These cameras were purchased and used by a local Bolton man between the 1950s and 1970s.
