Suter Minuscule Camera

The Minuscule Camera was manufactured by Optische Anstalt E. Suter of Basel, Switzerland in circa 1905. This folding hand camera was capable of capturing 6.5 x 9 cm exposures on Plates or film packs. The body was made of wood covered with fine leather. The baseboard and front U-shaped standard was made of aluminum. The bellows were made with black lather. The bellows would be set to infinity when initially pulled out. Focusing adjustments were made using the focusing screen, scales and a double extension bellows via rack and pinion gearing. The front lens could also be adjusted in rising, falling and lateral directions. It featured a swivel brilliant viewfinder for portrait and landscape shots. It was fitted with a Compur shutter providing speeds up to 1/250 second. The Minuscule Camera measured 13.5 x 10 x 5 cm when closed and weighed 750 grams.
