James A. Sinclair & Co. Ltd

London

England

Construction:
Mahogany, brass draw-slides.

Format:
3 " x 2 " plates.

Attributes:
Book form, velvet covered pressure plate. Tropical finish. Auto-catch on slides.

Notes:
Sinclair normally supplied block form slides for their Una camera, the book form though was supplied for Autochrome plates.

For Autochrome and other similar processes where the emulsion is at the rear of the plate the usual arrangement of having a spring press the plate forward to the focal-plane would damage the emulsion. Autochrome slides employed a velvet covered board or thick card behind the plate.
