Disney Tech Manuals from the 30's (I)
First, Lee Payne's 3-page manual "Camera Table Operations" of July 20th, 1936. At this time, there was only the standard 5F camera.
Then, two years minus one day later, the standard issue manual "Technical Problems", issued by the Scene Planning Dept. This introduces the 6½F camera.
Somewhere in my stack of manuals is a layout course by Charlie Phillippi, in which he mentions that before the actual 6½F cameras were delivered, all 6½F scenes were to be shot on the multiplane camera. This camera could shoot scenes without animation up to 10F, but with animation the maximum field was 6½F.
