Event: Beard's Mirror Camera - 20 January 2014

David Burder FRPS and Roger Smith will be presenting a replica of what was probably the first camera to be used commercially in England. Wolcott and Johnson’s design was adapted by Johnson and Beard and patented by Beard. The speakers will talk about the project, the making of the camera (made to Beard's patent drawings) and about the daguerreotype process. This is an evening meeting and time will not permit the making of an image but this is an opportunity to see an exceptional camera and learn about the way it was made and used. Places are limited. Promises to be an educational and fun event.

Monday 20 January 2014 at 6.30pm.
Wetherby Preparatory School, Bryanston Square, London, W1H 2EA

Organised by the RPS London DVJ Group jointly with the Historical Group

Admission £5 (free for RPS Members) Booking essential via RPS website.
