  Seneca Scout No. 3 & 3A

The No. 3 & 3A Scout box camera was manufactured by the Seneca Camera manufacturing company from approximately 1914 to 24. Advertised for any standard make of film type. Made in two popular sizes include a quarter plate and post card size. The Scout box cameras were constructed of wood and metal, with a durable black seal grain leatherette covering and nickel plated brass hardware. It was fitted with a fix focus, first grade meniscus lens with an automatic shutter for time or instantaneous exposures. It featured an easy load film chamber that was removed by releasing the catches that hold the chamber in place. Once removed film was easy loaded and the chamber returned to the camera where the catches would lock the chamber in place. Two view finders were built-in. The no. 3 was capable of taking twelve exposures 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches from a single roll film and the the No. 3A took ten exposures 3 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Priced at $4.00 and $5.00.
