A kinemacolor camera, one of the first colour motion picture camera/ projection systems could sell for £20,000 at auction later this year, according to the Daily Mail.

While a technically revolutionary process in 1908 the company that produced Kinemacolor were not commercially successful, largely due to the expense of each cinema needing to purchase a Kinemacolor to play the films and small numbers of companies choosing to shoot with the new process. The company eventually folded.

The object show in the photo is not a camera. The distinction between camera and projector is fairly significant.
