Designed as an extension of the virtual exhibition My camera and me, Zoom sur les caméras offers an incursion into the heart of the Cinémathèque québécoise's collections.

This selection of cameras and archives from our reserves bears witness to the way in which the technological evolution of cameras, towards ever greater maneuverability, has shaped the history of cinema and our way of seeing the world.

This is an evolving exhibition: we invite you to come and discover new items from our collections, added periodically.

Texts in French only.
