Perken : "Optimus" Magazine Camera

datasheet_loginManufacture: Perken, Son & Rayment
Location: London, England
Model: "Optimus" Magazine Camera
Production Dates: c1890
Film: Plate

Description: Twelve dry plates are placed in the upper portion of the grooved travelling reservoir. The bases of these plates rest upon the top of the Camera body. The grooved reservoir recedes gradually from the Exposure Chamber when the pinion is revolved- allowing one plate at a time to fall to the bottom half of the reservoir and so place its sensitized surface within the Exposure Chamber opposite to the Lens and exactly in true focussing register. The rapidity and simplicity of working is unique. The twelve plates may, if desired, be exposed in as many seconds. There is no possibility of the plates sticking. The Shutter is suitable and convenient.
