Fitted with a rapid rectilinear lens with iris diaphragm, and a Baush & Lomb unicum with adjustable instantaneous speeds from one second to 1/100th of a second. Focusing adjustment beyond six feet. Two tripod sockets as well as two brilliant view finders are included. This magazine camera carried twelve plates in metal sheaths or twenty four cut films, quarter plate in size and used the infallible changing system. Originally priced at 63s.
