"The Prestwich Patent Kinematograph Camera. Model 5. This camera was designed to meet the whishes of those who desire a self-contained instrument. It is more convenient in some respects than the Model 4 for photographing "stage" scenes or taking "trick" films. The "claw" movement is the same as in our well known Model 4. By an improved method of making the spindles and bearings the long life of this movement is enhanced. The chief features are : the film boxes have a capacity of 350 ft., and are attached inside the camera case. A focusing tube is provided, allowing the film to be viewed from the rear. The gate and back of film race are detachable. The mask is removable to enable others of special shape to be inserted. Two eight picture sprockets feed and take up the film, forming a loop in the film at top and bottom of the "gate". The handle is attached direct to the sprocket shafts, and thus gives eight pictures to each turn of the handle. The camera may be turned upside down if desired. On the driving side there are three spindles on which the handle screws. The bottom one gives forward movement to film, the top one being used when it is required to run the film in the reverse direction for trick subjects. The intermediate spindle gives one picture to one turn of handle. A film indicator up to 300 ft is fitted. The case is the best spanish mahogany, highly polished. All corners are brass bound. It is smaller and lighter than other instruments of this type. Finest workmanship and finish throughout. Prices : Prestwich Patent n° 5 Camera with 2 Film Boxes self-contained, £ 36. 00, extra film boxes, £ 1. 00, Leather bound canvas case, £ 1. 15. 00, Large view finder with lens and ground glass, £ 1. 00, Tripod best polished ash very rigid, £ 1. 10. 00" (Price list of Cine Studio Apparatus, London, The Tyler Apparatus Co., s.d., p. 17).
