    This is a nice sized 5 x 7 inch view camera that is small enough to take into the field. It’s a multiplying view meaning that it can make several gem sized images on a single ferrotype plate. After the plate is developed, the photographer snips apart the individual pictures.

    The camera is normally sold with a single lens with a shifting plate holder. However some photographers would add 4 or 9 tube sets to increase the number of shots on a plate.

    The wide back design allows a plate holder to move side-to-side and the tall board enables the entire back to rise or fall. The body is made of mahogany with a cherry base.

      Hey. I just found an Anthony Climax Multiplying Camera with film holders (missing lens/lensboard & focus glass) in an antique shop. Couldn't ID it until I found your post, THANKS! Needs some restoration, but debating on DIY or professional. Any idea of the value?

      Wow-that is awesome!

      Hi PDayPhoto ... sounds like you have a good find; however, many Anthony view cameras look very similar. It would be helpful if you posted pictures of the camera here on Show & Tell so that I can look it over. - Rob
