Cameras in Disguise

Devices from the Permanent Collection

California Museum of Photography

January 1, 2007 - January 1, 2008



Early dry-plate cameras were often called "detective" cameras because their lack of obvious photographic features made it easy to use them without being detected. Others could be concealed, like the vest camera, or disguised as something other than a camera. These devices illustrated in the gallery are assorted examples from the UCR/CMP collection.
