Newman & Guardia Stereo Pattern Camera

The Newman & Guardia Stereo Pattern Camera was introduced in approximately 1892-93 and continued through the 1920s. Capable of taking two images on a double quarter plate, 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches, where two ordinary quarter plates can be used instead of the special 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 plate, therefore allowing the photographer to either take twelve stereo or 24 single quarter plate exposures or any combination.

Constructed of well-seasoned mahogany with cross-tongued wood wrok, covered with real black morocco leather of best quality, special wired handle for strength and durability, broad canvas sling with steel swivels, and a tripod screw with bushings.

Fitted with two special paired lens placed 3-in on center consisting of a Wray f8.0 or a Zeiss Anastigmat f6.3. A double high efficiency shutter with two iris diaphragms, two spring doors, made entirely of metal, hermetically closed pneumatic regulation providing exposure speeds from 1/2 to 1/100 of a second, in addition to time exposures. Provides both hand and pneumatic release. Special 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch detachable changing box for plates or films, two special T-levels, two N&G real image identical view finders, special focusing screen, central rack and pinion movement, focusing scale engraved from two yards to infinity, vertical rising front, double extension.
