    A camera-watch!

    I saw this at the Michaels Camera Museum in Melbourne (Australia) today, and thought it would fit in with the theme of watch photography:

    Steineck ABC Wristwatch Camera, Steineck Kamerawerk. W. Germany, 1949.
    The 1949 Steineck Wristwatch Camera produced 8 exposures on a circular film in special magazines.
    It had a single aperture fixed focus lens with a single speed shutter.

    (I tried to provide a link to the trip advisor page, with details about the museum, but I have too low a post count, sorry!)

    That's really cool! Made me think of Roman Holiday even though it was used more for spy purposes.

    That's the question, vkuong! I'm honestly not sure. I can find photos online showing the container the film was kept in, but I haven't found any examples of negatives, yet!

    Of course, I comment, and then find a few photos of the film: Steineck ABC Accessories - Accessories - film

    Hi, that Steineck Wristwatch Camera reminded me of the Apple Watch nowadays though, I'm not familiar if it has a camera too. I guess, Apple is more of a fitness tracker wristwatch. Am I correct guys? Though Steineck is also fashionable at a glance, it is more of a miniature camera.

    Incredible piece of hardware. I want one of those that just tells the time; It would look like a more affordable Horological Machine.

    You can't. Thats why it is not a watch but a wrist camera.
