Description: This style comprises all the specifications of the preceding one, with the addition of several new features and attachments demanded
by more experienced amateurs.

The rack and pinion focusing attachment makes it very desirable for fine focusing, also the sliding front movement will be found convenient in making vertical pictures. The detachable lens board is an especially handy arrangement, whereby the shutter and lens can be removed and a wide angle or any other lens inserted in an instant, thus doing away with unscrewing the shutter, whereby the fine mechanism is often injured, and the annoyance caused by different sized lens flanges is avoided. Extra duplicate lens boards can be secured at any time and fitted to any lens it is desirable to use in the camera.
