Supporting Member. I think I just landed a Sanderson British view camera on eBay. I'm ashamed to name the price. However, all the Sandersons that I am familiar with look slightly different such as polished Teak wood for the front panel, brass fittings.
As I am not very familiar with the British makers, can someone enlighten me whether this is or it is not a Sanderson? I'll attach two pictures, one of the camera I won and the other one a picture I found on the Internet of a Sanderson camera. Any ideas? JPG I might have found the ID. I believe it to be the En Sanderson Hand Camera.
Here is a pic from Christie's of London:. Sorry I don't know much about it The day I actually know something about vintage cameras that isn't already contained within your vast knowledge base is the day I That day will never come.
Battou TPF junkie! Click to expand Neat camera -- congrats! McKeown's Guide lists a Sanderson Camera Works of England and lists several models, all appear to be plate cameras. What is unique about them is their lens board support system which was claimed to make movements easier than on other cameras.

En was a trade name used by Houghton Butcher for their cameras smaller cameras, they had taken over Sanderson in By the 50's En was part of Ross En, camera production stopped in the early 60's. I found the following info from an auction site on the web: "Houghton-Butcher Mfg. SmithAntique Cameras, p. Brian CoeCameras, pp. Edward HolmesAn Age of Cameras, p.

NOTES The Sanderson range of field and hand cameras was one of the most popular and longest-lived British camera des in production from until the second world war, with many remaining in service well into the s and beyond.
Frederick H. Sanderson's patent, the basis of the whole range and, in modern parlance, the unique selling point, was granted on 10 January British patent The patent described a strut system that allowed the camera back or front to be fixed at any angle in conjunction with an adjustable lens panel. Sanderson began selling the camera until the sole rights were passed to Houghtons Ltd. During the camera's history over sixty distinct models of camera were produced supported by an extensive range of lens and shutter combinations and accessories.
The basic field camera de was added to in by the hand and stand Sanderson. This de went through an extensive range of minor modifications including a rollfilm version and standard and tropical versions in various plate sizes, until the s when an ebonised version with chrome fittings was introduced. Along the way three different types of front standard catch were brought in, six different lens panel fixings, and body types and there were seven distinct label types amongst other variations.
The first Sanderson camera appeared in late and was advertised from Houghtons took over the manufacture from Houghtons described the camera as: 'A new principle on Camera Construction Distinct from every other camera on the market'. The Sanderson patented struts were claimed to do: 'away with the tilting of the camera, entirely dispenses with the swing back and in place of all the old movements and adjustments of Camera and Stand, a greater latitude between lens and plate is secured, with the power to swing the front and to compose a subject on the Ground Glass, and roughly focus it, all by one and the same action, and is controlled by two adjusting screws only, one on either side of the camera front'.
From the earliest days the camera was made available in plate sizes from quarter-plate to 15 x 12 inches. The Sanderson hand camera even by was described by in the En Photographic Catalogue as: 'One of the worlds most famous cameras and used extensively by most serious workers. The Sanderson embodies every possible movement that may be required for any sort of pictorial subject'. During the course of the camera's history the camera struts were ed consecutively from three-figure s to a high in the 26, series.
I may have some 30's adverts that include the camera, I'll look when I'm next in the UK. IanG said:. The little gem came today and she is a beauty! It's in almost mint condition, bellows feel like they left the factory a few days ago. Lens mm Ektar, not original but will do sounds a little sluggish on the slower speeds, will clean it soon.
I'll take a few pics of it when I get rid of the flu. But I've only just found a much older copy, here's the advert for your camera or a variant of it. Of interest?? I love it!!!!!!!! Thanks Ian, I'll print this baby and set it aside with the camera. Thanks a million! You must log in or register to reply here. Canon Bellows FL.
