1953 Linex Camera Kit. Look what we found while rummaging around in an attic here in Northern Maine! This is a Linex camera set made from 1953 to 1956. It is all here except for the. Camera strap, the original owners manual and the film. Everything appears to be. In top top shape, but we have no way of giving if a proper test run. This is a hard. To find camera, especially with the original packaging and the flash which was. Background of the camera. A great find for a collector of cameras, or even Lionel. The Linex is a short-lived stereo camera. The Linex is stoutly built, primarily of cast metal, and has rather limited controls. There is a single “snapshot” shutter speed; and the twin achromat lenses are fixed focus. With 6 feet as the closest recommended subject distance. Exposure may be adjusted between “normal” and “bright” conditions using a front selector lever, which switches the lens aperture between roughly f/6 and f/8. The Linex was supplied new as a complete kit which included a battery-operated stereo viewer, a plaid carrying case, and, a starter cartridge of film in a mailer box to return it for processing. The proprietary film cartridges were a drop-in rectangular stick shape, with an integral dark slide, loaded with enough unperforated 16mm color-transparency film. To permit exposing 8 stereo pairs. The image size is slightly larger than that used in the View-Master camera. Rather than a conventional advance lever, a clear plastic pull-strip protrudes from the end of the cartridge, perforated with index holes which ensure the correct frame spacing (however cocking the shutter is a separate operation). Gustavson states that Ansco. Was the supplier of the Linex transparency film; but that the oddball proprietary format likely held back sales of the camera, leading to its 1956 discontinuation.
