Big WOOD RECORD CAMERAHome made? 1930-40s ?
For 35mm film but it is a still camera. A strange looking mechanism to advance the film and shoot.
It has an handle on top to carry (It's very heavy so I don't envy the photographer)

This type of camera was used especially in schools, clubs, universities and even jails
to photograph individuals, quickly, and without hassle.Fast way to take individual pictures of a very large
number of people, in a fixed spot under a fixed lighting.
There were several manufacturers of such cameras in the early thirties, and many were also home made.
Lens: BETAX No. 2 Wollensak, Focus Series VII

  
MICROSCOPE  cameras1960-80s
Left to right: NIKON M35 with a big Zeiss- element which includes a round inner-flash,
ZEISS M35 and an unamed C35 (NIKON too?).  Those 35mm film-cameras were specialy made
for the labs to be attached to microscopes so they don't have thier own lenses.
