Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 Gérard Langlois' pages Constructeurs Français d'appareils photo (French camera makers) list the company as Compagnie Generale de Photographie, though they show a picture of the camera with the name engraved as given here.
  2. This address is engraved on most examples of the Photosphere.
  3. Listed by Gérard Langlois (above), the Photo Panoramique may be the panoramic camera patented by Napoléon Conti, designer of the Photosphère, in 1900; see British Patent 22200 of 1900, Improvements relating to photographic cameras, in the name of Napoléon Conti, at Espacenet, the patent search facility of the European Patent Office. The patent describes a camera with roll film, passed around a curved path by a glass guide, and with a swinging lens, controlled by a pneumatic piston. Espacenet also lists corresponding US and Swiss patents.
