Century Grand Studio Outfit No. 7

Manufacture: Century Camera Company
Location: Rochester, New York
Model: Grand Studio Outfit No. 7
Category: Studio Camera
Production Dates: 1900 - 1907
Film: Glass Plates


The Century Studio Outfit No. 7 closely parallels the 8x10 Century Universal Studio Outfit. The camera and stand being identical with the equipment supplied with the latter, with the exception that no swinging ground glass frame is included with the camera.

The No. 7 Studio Outfit also dispenses with 8x10 sliding ground glass carriage permits the use of light weight 8x10 Curtain Slide Holder. This ground glass carriage does not operate automatically as does the attachment supplied with tile Universal Outfit. After focusing off the ground glass panel the carriage is moved to the right, which brings the plate holder into position. With this outfit an adapting frame is inclined, which permits the use of 5x7 Curtain Slide Holders in the 8x10 sliding ground glass carriage.

Plates may be placed in the 8x10 or 5x7 holders in either vertical or horizontal position, and the holders may be reversed in the attachment. A catch on the top of the ground glass carriage enables the operator to make two exposures on either 5x7 or 8x10 plates when placed in the holder in a horizontal position.

The stand supplied with the No. 7 Studio Outfit is the new No. l Semi-Centennial Stand which works smoothly and noiselessly. This Stand is equipped with rubber tired casters and Jack for locking the stand in any desired position on to the floor.

The stand is the regular 8x10 Semi-Centennial Stand as supplied with the Century Universal Outfit. A rack to carry 5x7 curtain slide holders is supplied with this outfit.

The Century Studio Outfit No. 7 is in every feature, fully up to the Century standard of quality, and will prove a handsome and practical addition to any studio.

Reference for: 1902
