The Junior was the cheapest model in the 'Popular' range of Sanderson cameras. It differed from the Regular in not having independent rising front, that is, the whole front standard had to be raised. On the Regular model the front standard could be clamped to the four front struts with a small degree of rise still being possible on the lens panel. The junior was only made in the half-plate size. Several lenses were available as standard, a roller-blind shutter was normally sold with the camera.
