This is an extremely well made camera produced from the mid 1890s and still available in the 1920s. For panoramic use the front panel is shifted and the septum removed. Different finders were fitted, in one pattern a small finder could be slid along a track on the top of the body for stereo or panoramic use.

The changing box operates in a similar way to some Gaumont models.
