Martin and Osa Johnson with their Akeley Camera filming at Lake Paradise 1923 - NL1046.1


The Akeley Camera was designed for making films of animal life as it could be moved quickly and safely. For action shots Martin Johnson, always an inventive master of photographic technique, mounted two Akeley cameras together. One of the cameras was timed to make the usual 16 exposures per second but the other was timed to take 64 exposures per second. The two sets of footage were exposed at the same time, making both regular and slow motion films, which permitted a close study of every movement.
