  Pony Premo No. 2 Camera

The Pony Premo No. 2 Camera was manufactured by the Rochester Optical Company beginning in 1898. Advertised as a thoroughly practical outfit. The back of the camera is made square to allow the instant changing from horizontal to vertical position or vice versa without disturbing the camera. Plates, cut films or roll film can be used. Features include sliding front for adjusting sky and foreground, and is fitted with a single achromatic or rapid rectilinear lens with adjustable diaphragms. A safety shutter is provided with time and instantaneous capabilities. The ground glass screen is spring acting and recedes to allow the insertion of the plate. Available only in 4 x 5 inch size, this camera measures only 2 1/4 x 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches and weighs just over two pounds. Originally priced at $10.00. Cut film holder or cartridge roll holder extra.
