"Thank you Rob! I find interesting to see a horizontal tailboard camera, as most of Castro's pictures follow this format. I had not thought about that...And the information on the lens in relation to the camera confirms my hipotheses. Very very…"

"The link below shows a typical bellows camera from the 1860s for plates around 6 x 8", this example was actually made a little later but the design was the same as earlier models. www.earlyphotography.co.uk/site/entry_C283.htmlThis link will…"

"Thank you Michael! This bibliography is very useful for me, I am no expert in photographic cameras! I am prettiy sure this information may be useful for other people too. I would love to read that couple of entries from your own book, if possible.…"

"Sara, the best reference on camera history for this period is: Brian Coe (1978), Cameras. From daguerreotype to instant picture.  R C Smith's (1975) Antique Cameras is a good, if somewhat dated, descriptive account of cameras of the…"

References suggest that it was a state of the art field stand camera. The plates produced are 26 x 31 (10 x 12") and 16 x 21 (6 x 8"). The lens was probably a Dallmeyer-Petzval…See More
