Smedley and Co. | Improved Up-To-Date | English | 10 X 12 inch Plate

ENGLISH FIELD/STUDIO CAMERA. C1901. Smedleys seem to have specialised in very large format studio and field cameras. At 12 X 10, one shot would use the same amount of emulsion as four 35mm films. This is the largest in my collection and I wouldn't want to go any larger, as I need to go on living in my house. Smedleys made cameras up to 24 X 20. That's big.
