Dickson -In 1892, Thomas Edison and his British partner, Dickson, develop the Kinetograph, which captures actual motion pictures for the first time. -These were no longer illusions, but actual motion pictures - The Kinetograph became the basis for the more popular hand cranked camera, which came along shortly after First public demonstration of a motion picture- “Dickson Greeting” (1892) Second Clip: “Corbett and Courtney” (1894)
