Antique Victorian Field Camera


This 19th Century wooden camera is known as a " ReiseKamera" or travel camera. These cameras became popular in Europe in the late 1800s with a rise in the need for professional photographers looking for something smaller and lightweight to transport enabling them to work outside of their studio. Its collapsible design and lightweight wooden body made this camera the choice for field work. Ours is stunning with the very unusual red bellows.
