From 1923-27 a French company, Andre Debrie, modified the Autocinephot made by an Italian company F.A.C.T.. The name Sept ("seven" in French) was probably for the seven functions of performance capable by this little camera: still photos, sequential photos, cine (motion picture), still projector, cine projector, enlarger, and cine transfer machine.
This being the first Sept Debrie model it consisted of a square single spring housed motor drive and rarely seen Anastigmat Huet 50mm F3.5 lens. Sept II had a two spring motor drive and front bulge to the top of the housing. This camera is in excellent shape and fully functional. Original and unaltered it came with the leather case, and two extra cassettes. Also heavy and egonomically challenging.
