Clifton View Camera

 

Anthony Catalog, June 1901, p. 26

5x8


Date Introduced: - ; Years Manufactured: c.1898-1906
Construction: front focus via rack and pinion (two gear tracks on top of base rails) and rear focus via push-pull; double swing; reverse by removable back; three-piece lens board
Materials: mahogany body; cherry base track; black fabric bellows; brass hardware
Sizes Offered: 5x7; 5x8; 6½x8½; 8x10; 11x14; 14x17
Notes: The front standard focuses by rack and pinion; the rear standard slides in the middle groove, tightened by a lever - two different types of focus similar to the Gennert Brighton, the American Optical Manifold, and the Smith Magic View/Sunart Photo (probably Seneca-made) Vici.  There is a Long Focus Clifton model, which, while having the two types of focus and an identical front standard to this model, has rear standard hardware more reminiscent of a Century camera than an Anthony.
