Rob's 20th Annual International Camera Shows Only 55 camera shows listed so far. The number of shows continues to drop so, as always, contact me if you know about a show that is not on my list.

Unknown American Field View Camera, 1890s (4¼ x 5¼ inch format) This camera took me a long time to acquire and tt defied my attempts to identify it back then, and still does now. Yet what a wonderful design vaariation of the classic English Compact folding pattern.

Eastman No.5 Folding Kodak - 1893 stereo version) A fine example of this elusive camera finally joins my collection. All leather hinges are intact! It includes both stereo and single lens sets and roll film holder with matching serial numbers. The 1893 version is the only year that has focusing levers. From 1894 to 1897, the cameras were designated as "Improved" and use rack & pinion focusing. To be posted at a later date.

(Firefox and smartphones in particular are making life miserable.) As such, you might see some misalignment, text overlapping and other issues. I'm working on fixing this, however, changing the text size usually helps.
