Hi all I am doing my 3rd year  graphic design project on the advancements of movie cameras. With a particular interest in the cameras that made big differences to what was able to be done, as well as early camera's. I was hoping to get some advise as to what cameras to look at. 

Thanks to any one who reply's.

My short list would be the Pathé,  Bell & Howell 2709, Mitchell Standard that takes you up to about 1920.

The Bolex H16? It's compact size, versatility and rugged construction made it popular for documentary filmmakers.

The documentary "The Camera That Changed the World" is a great resource to learn about how the sync-sound silent 16mm cameras (Mostly the Eclair NPR, but also a modified Auricon) revolutionized filmmaking. It features interviews with Michelle Brault, Richard Leacock, Robert Drew, DA Pennebaker, Albert Maysles, JPB himself, Nena Baratier, and a handful of others.
