The Quta camera was manufactured by the Quta Camera & Plate Company of New York City. This ferrotype camera was patented on April 15, 1902 by Herbert E. Hickox of Great Yarmouth, England. It is similar to the Popular Ferrotype camera that was sold by Jonathon Fallowfield except the American version featured a hinged top. It was a rigid box-like magazine camera, weighing only six pounds, capable of capturing for 36 exposures, 2 inch by 2 1/2 inch in size on ferrotype dry plates. The images were able to be developed on to the plates immediately after exposure, fixed, washed, dried and framed so that the finished picture can be available for use after a minute.
