An Exceptionally Fine Sixth Plate Tropical Camera For Sale
An Exceptionally Fine Sixth Plate Tropical Camera
Description: Offered is an exceptionally fine and small sixth plate (6.5cm x 9cm) tropical camera with 12 brass bound double dark slides. The camera is unsigned but very similar to the Tropical Sinclair Una. The camera is of exceptional quality and condition.
The French polished body is bound at all joints with recessed brass bindings as is the fold down front and the 6 double dark slides. A large button at the top of the camera releases the fold down front on which is screwed a Watson type tilting viewer and ivorine focussing plate. The front of the camera pulls out with a locking lever just below the lens. The lens panel can be lifted and lowered and tilted back and forth. Knurled nuts and a locking lever at the side keep the panel at the desired angle. The front of the camera can be racked out doubling the length. At the back of the camera body is a rotating back (very similar to the tropical Una) with a sprung catch locking it into position. A pop out leather hood sits behind the sixth plate ground glass back which can be removed to take the dark slides.
The lens is a Carl Zeiss Jenna Tessar f4.5 which seems to work fine(not tested for accuracy of shutter speed). The lens comes with a pair of clip on lenses; Distar and Proxars. There is also another lens board with no lens.
Condition: Cosmetically this camera is exceptional with only minor scuffing to where the tripod ring was once mounted. The golden lacquer on all of the brass is as near perfect as you will ever come across. The drawers on the double dark slides have some minor scuffing from been pulled back when exposing the plate but this is very minor. Mechanically the camera is very good with no wear or slack.
Closed Camera - 12.5cm x 13cm x 9cm
