Burke and James Speed Press

Press camera, a direct competitor of Graflex Crown and Speed ​​Graphic.

The quality is good, a little bit raw from foundry for this device entirely made ​​of light alloy. Less known than the Graflex, the Burke & James Speed ​​Press were strong and appreciated by their users.
The famous photographer Weegee, used a B & J of this type (along with many others!). The back is rotating, which means that one can keep the device horizontal and take horizontal or vertical images.
