The Debrie Parvo was developed by Joseph Jules Debrie, built by his son Andre Debrie and was a relatively compact camera for the time. This particular camera has been modified and a red/orange and a green filter wheel placed behind the lens for a two-colour process, such as Kinemacolor. Kinemacolor was one of the first commercially successful colour movie film processes.
