Now that’s a camera!

An 8×10 still camera operated by photographer Neal Harburger used to capture stills on Paramount westerns c.1930s. The camera was a Minex, designed by A. Adams & Co. of London. The camera was 18 inches high, 30 inches long (with the bellows extended) and weighed 34 pounds. From the literature it looks to be the “Tropical” model made of brass, teak, and Russian leather bellows.
