Description
This is the Magazine from an F24 Camera. The F24 camera was the main air reconnaissance camera at the start of World War 2. However, by the end of 1941 it was clear that the F24 camera with its small 5" x 5" format and short focal length lens (only 20") that this was too small for detailed photo interpretation, especially as the camera-carrying aircraft were then having to fly much higher. The F-24 Camera was later built and used by the USAAF as the K-24. It used Roll film.
