The Irwin Magazine Movie Camera Model 16 was among the first U.S.-made magazine cameras (see Bib Tab for reference). The camera takes 16mm Irwin 50 foot film magazines. The camera has a rectangular metal body with a black textured outer surface. A hexagonal tube viewfinder is mounted on top of the body. The camera has a spring motor that runs at 16 frames per second. The winder is on the right side of the body. The f4.5/1" lens is incorporated into the body and has a chrome-plated hexagonal 'nut' serving as a lens shade. A hexagonal knob below the lens controls the lens aperature. A removeable leather strap is attached to the top.
