Antique & Vintage Photographic Equipment

Index by Camera Type

This page provides an index into the collection by type of camera. The cameras corresponding to a specific category are identified in a table, where each row provides a thumbnail picture of the camera, identifies its common name and the manufacturer (as used on the alternate index page that lists cameras by manufacturer).

Clicking on the thumbnail image within any of the tables below will open the specific page for that camera (or in some cases, a family of cameras). If a default image is shown in the table, then the page exists but has as yet to have photographs added. If no thumbnail image is present at all then the page is still under development and is not accessible.

The links on the navigation bar on the left identify the categories used to group cameras within the collection. Selecting a particular type category will scroll the index page to the corresponding table. Clicking on the arrow below any table on this index page will return you to the top of the page.

The categories used are intended to help a visitor to the site who is interested in finding cameras of similar form grouped together - they are not intended to represent a definitive method of categorising antique and classic cameras. Others may have a different view on how such cameras should be grouped and there are instances where it has been necessary to make some fairly arbitrary assignments.

The following primary type categories are used in this index (click on the image to go to that category):

Image of Wood & Brass Camera Wood & Brass This general category is used for cameras whose construction consists primarily of wood with brass fittings and / or lens.
Thumbnail of SLR Plate camera Reflex This category covers both Single Lens Reflex (SLR) and Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) cameras.
Thumbnail of Hand & Stand camera Hand & Stand This is used to categorize early forms of folding or self-casing plate cameras that could be hand-held or used on a tripod, but generally of much heavier construction than a Folding camera. Such cameras would generally be equipped with some form of viewfinder and a focusing scale for hand use, as well as a ground glass screen for focusing when used on a tripod.
Thumbnail of Folding Rollfilm Camera Folding (Rollfilm & Plate) This applies to cameras that are light enough to be hand-held, but are completely collapsible and portable. Generally applies to cameras that are leather covered and of wooden or metal construction with a front cover that hinges down and locks to form the baseboard on which the lens standard is supported.

In the collection, this is in fact split into two categories to differentiate between cameras designed to work primarily with rollfilm and those designed to work with plates.

Thumbnail of Boxform Rollfilm camera Boxform (Rollfilm & Plate) This applies to cameras that are essentially of box construction and therefore not collapsible, with a lens at the front and the negative material at the rear.

As with Folding cameras, this is split into two categories to differentiate between rollfilm and plate cameras.

Thumbnail of Detective camera Detective General term used here for any style of partially disguised camera or one that is in some way hidden so that it could be used to take candid shots.

However this was also adopted as a more general term for a number of simple plate box cameras, particularly (but not exclusively) in the U.S.A. Such cameras that carry "Detective" as part of their name are also included within this category.

Thumbnail of Butcher Twink Falling Plate camera Falling Plate or Magazine Cameras (usually of box form) that allowed a set of plates to be pre-loaded in the camera and moved into the film plane by various mechanical methods. Once exposed, the plate then generally falls into the base of the camera, to be replaced by the next.

Every camera that is featured in this index will be allocated to one primary category. However, further subdivision may occur into the following secondary categories (click on the image to go to that category):

Image of Combination camera Combination This category applies to cameras that are designed to work with both plate and rollfilm concurrently, that is, the film can be isolated by a dark slide to allow a plate holder to be used without the film having to be unwound.
Thumbnail of Field camera Field This category is used for wood & brass cameras intended for use on a tripod and would use plates rather than rollfilm, which encompasses Field or View cameras. For transportation the lens standard folds into the base or the back, and then the base folds against the back to form a compact unit.
Thumbnail of Tailboard Camera Tailboard A wood & brass camera that has a hinged baseboard along which the back is able to move to focus. For transportation, the back is slid forward to meet the front and the baseboard then folds up behind it.
Image of Tropical Roll-Film Camera Tropical A camera designed or adapted specifically for use in tropical climates. It is usually applied to wood & brass cameras where teak is used rather than mahogany, but some are leather covered or metal bodied.
Thumbnail of stereo box camera Stereo >A camera designed specifically (rather than adapted) for taking stereo pictures.
Thumbnail of Miniature camera Miniature In this collection, this category is used to group cameras that take film sizes smaller than Kodak 127 or plates smaller than vest pocket (VP) size.
Image of typical premium camera Premium This category corresponds to cameras that were provided either as free gifts or as part of a coupon scheme and generally through a third party rather than directly by the maker.

A specific camera may appear in zero or more secondary categories.
