Chronology of cameras Hermagis 
History of the brand Hermagis New window

Traduction de Manuel M

The Vélocigraphe* (curious name!) is a detective camera 9 x 12 or 13 x 18. There also exists in stereo version 9 x 18.
The advertisement below evokes the “base bed velocipedic**” and thus gives a beginning of explanation to this strange name.

Note of the translator

* Difficult to translate in english. A kind of word which mixes bicycle and photography.
** Even more difficult to translate. A kind of bicycle base bed. In fact, the advertisement of the middle says : "For all hand cameras as for the Vélocigraphe allowing to take instantaneous view at any speed, on bicycle as on tricycle, on the pavement as on the macadam";
