    The Phenakistoscope is the

    The Phenakistoscope is the predecessor of the zoetrope time. To this interesting development of the moving image can be found on www. many descriptions and pictures. And I got the idea to use the drive for the zoetrope, even for a Phenakistoscope.

    I have the disk image glued with a square shaft. Then one can see in a mirror, how to move the pictures.

    The presentation with a normal compact camera is difficult. Speed and the images per sec must match.

    Particularly interesting are the many images of Eadweard Muybridge with my favorites (Couple waltzing). Here, the stroboscopic effect can be seen very well.

    The narrow columns give a darker but sharper animation.
