Century Stereoscopic Camera

The Century Stereoscopic Cameras were manufactured from 1900 to approximately 1906. Several models were introduced with slight variations, mainly lens and shutter combinations. Constructed of solid mahogany with dovetail workmanship and covered in fine black leather. Polished mahogany bed with piano hinge for stability. The brass hardware is highly polished and lacquered. This high quality made camera featured duel rack and pinion focusing with a long extension bellows, and a rising and falling front. The regular models were originally fitted with a matched pair of Century Rapid Symmetrical lenses and specially designed stereoscopic shutter. A regular lens could be fitted for making full sized 5 x 7 pictures.

Stereo Century Model 12,
