The Tropical Una camera was manufactured by James A. Sinclair & Company of London, England beginning in circa 1912. Designed similar to the standard Una, except strengthened to be able to withstand harsh climates. The camera box was made of mahogany wood finely polished on the inside and outside, with brass screws and bras bounding. The fittings were made of brass, polished and lacquered. It featured rack and pinion movement for the long bellows, a rising, falling and cross swing front, a revolving back instead of a removable reversible back, focusing scales, a spirit level, ground glass screen, a Sinclair tilting finder, and a tripod bush. The Tropical Una was made in various sizes.
