datasheet_loginManufacture: Perken, Son & Rayment
Location: London, England
Model: "Optimus" Wide Angle Camera
Production Dates: c.1890

Description: EXTRA LONG FCUS. Baseboard does not cut off the view when using wide angle lens.

This Instrument possesses every possible advantage, being very light, very rigid, and very portable. The focussing screen and body may be brought towards the front of baseboard so as to prevent obstruction when using lenses of wide angular aperature and short focus. It is provided with double swing arrangement and long focussing )rack) adjustment. When closed the lens may remain attached to its proper position (the front), and project through the Turntable easeboard.
