The Clearwater Periscope lens system was a type of television camera developed in 1985 by Clearwater Features for use on the children's television series Tugs and Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. The cameras were used together with live action model animation,[1] to produce the image of character movements at eye level.[2] Only two of these camera systems were ever made.[3]
