Camera motion picture machine gun Type 89 (八九 式 活動 写真 銃) was a completely new model Rokuoh-sha. It is said that in 1929 four experimental chambers [44] (In the name,"" Type 89"" means the year 2589 in the Japanese mythological calendar, ie 1929) were produced. That first version was perhaps imported lenses. The final version was Kai 2 (改 二), produced in series from 1933 to about 1944 [44] The camera was used by the Navy, [53] as indicated by the anchor usually stamped on the identification plate [54]. The camera takes pictures of target 18 × 24mm through the main objective and the measured time by a stopwatch Seikosha through an auxiliary lens [53] in 35mm movie film loaded in strips 2.5 m [55] [56 ] it is driven by a spring motor, and sequences can take 10 frames per second [53] the purpose of making a Hexar be.1 7.5 cm f / 4.5, and the cooking time is recorded through an auxiliary lens Hexar be.1 4 cm f / 4.5. [44] [53] The optical sight, the grip and the clamping rings are removable and may be minor variations [57]. Today I want to talk about a really rare piece: the camera-machine gun training 'Type 89' manufactured by Konishiroku (later known as Konica) and used during World War II. In previous releases we speak of aerial cameras used by aircraft of the Allied side during the war. Here, we bring you an original piece used by the Japanese bombers as entretamiento tool for its pilots. Specifically, this model was manufactured in 1929, when four experimental chambers were created. In fact, the name"" Type 89"" refers to the year 2589, in the Japanese calendar equivalent to 1929. Only 3,420 were produced from these cameras. This type of camera differs from combat in the latter were used to confirm the deaths of the pilots, while training, were used to evaluate the Gunners aim of combat. These particular guns were mounted on airplanes, as if it were a weapon. Thus, when the trigger is pulled,"" shoot"" camera and taking pictures of 18x24mm on 35mm film. As a curiosity, note that this camera-machine gun was used to train artileros in the famous Zero fighter, the fighter jet more powerful and star of the Japanese Navy in World War II. Was the plane that bombed Pearl Harbor. Thus, once the training mission, the film was revealed and the aim was evaluated before the real battle in the air. Only when the riders dominated the camera 'Type 89' they were sent into battle. The camera could be installed both inside the plane, controlled by gunners, and outside of the same, operated remotely by cables. The manufacturer of this camera was later renamed Konishoroku Konica, the Japanese brand known which merged in 2003 with Minolta.
