Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum

This Eastman Kodak 35mm camera is the same as the ones used to take pairs of close-up photographs of the lunar surface. When the camera’s base was placed on the Moon's surface and the trigger under the handle pulled, the camera would photograph the area beneath its lenses. The resulting photographs would give a three dimensional or stereoscopic effect when placed in a special viewer.This item was transferred to the Smithsonian in 1974.
