Maurer P-2 Aircraft Strike Attack 70mm Camera
Item Details
Description
Uncommon military-grade Maurer P-2 Aircraft Strike Attack Camera, complete with its 70mm film magazine and Eleget Militar 3-inch (76mm) f:2.8 lens. The unit measures 10" x 4" x 4" overall, and has J. A. Maurer, Inc. identification plates on the bottom: "Camera Body, Sequential, Aircraft, Strike Attack, Type P-2" and "Magazine, Sequential, Aircraft, Camera, 50 ft. cap., 70mm film, (for Type P-2 Camera)." Designed and produced in the 1950s by John A. Maurer, these cameras were designed for military aerial reconnaissance photography-specifically, recording the impact of bombs, rockets, and bullets delivered either in air-to-air or air-to-ground attacks. The P-2 was capable of performing direct bomb damage assessment with a reasonable degree of accuracy and clarity. Maurer would later develop the 16mm Data Acquisition Camera, as used by NASA on the Apollo missions.
