    I have a pair of photographs that came in a box lot of stuff. They measure 7 1/2" long from the tabs x 4 1/4". The are both of the same golfer and they are timed release? Is that the correct word? Are they from a Land camera or? One appears to be out on the links and the other at a driving range. Golfer.JPG

    I think "time lapse" is when multiple shots are taken at specific intervals, and then played back at a fast rate of speed to speed up something that happens slowly ie: a flower opening, or the clouds rolling by, or the sun setting etc...

    This looks like a similar concept - multiple shots at very quick intervals, but done to slow down a quick action - in this case to analyze a golf swing. I think the term would be "high speed photography". I don't know how they get it all one one land camera frame - there must be some kind of special attachment where only one section of the film gets exposed at a time when the shutter fires.

    Thank you Aaron. Do you believe to be from a land camera or an earlier camera?

    I think it looks like land camera film but I haven't ever seen multiple exposures on one frame like that.

    I suspect that at least the first image was a "photograph of film frames" as opposed to the way the second one looks. See the little triangular pieces between the images and the slots (like in roll film)?

    And looking at the second composite, I find it odd that there is no separation between the individual images, which also vary in width as we look from left to right. I think this is another photograph of photographs. I cannot imagine a Polaroid camera with enough sophistication to take multiple images on a single piece of film.

    Looking closer I think Bakers is correct.. photos of a series of prints or perhaps frames of movie film.

    Motion studies. Surprised no one's mentioned Eadweard Muybridge. He pioneered the technique, though much before these.

    Looking for cameras that might do that sort of thing, I come up empty. Only see arrays of individual cameras.

    It would be simple enough to create the images in a darkroom. Perhaps the shape of the paper is adapted for a specific means of doing so. I don't know.

    I'd like to see a single film camera that could capture multiple arrayed images, like those, in situ.

    I personally have no knowledge of how these could have been done that is why I came here. If they are multiple pictures laid side by side how did they get each picture in sinc?

    Yes, that amazon camera might do the trick. And it uses 35mm film.

    Lomography, and lomography cameras are new to me. No reason there shouldn't be polaroid examples.

    Interesting thread.

    Interesting......the back of the paper says "polaroid".....I've had Polaroid Land Cameras in the past for over 60 years (I think!!) and I never saw any film shaped like that......let alone a sequence of images on any ONE piece of paper like that either!!!! :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Hi @crs....can I copy your images to send off to a site to ask about them????

    Of course you can. I recall my dad having a camera that used film like this when I was a small fellow. You had to use some kind of chemical on a 3" squeegee type thing.
