Sanderson Regular

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

Frederich H Sanderson, a cabinet maker was interested in photography since 1880 years.
As he found that current camera were not convenient to used and with less movements as he desired, then he decide to build his own one.
In January 1895, he patented a design for lens board movement system which will be used on all Sanderson cameras.
This system uses four lens board support struts which allow the lens to be moved off and about its axis to avoid undesirable perspective effects.
The production was entrusted to Holmes Brothers Co, and selling to Houghton London.
In 1899, He introduced “Hand and Stand” cameras and modifies the front board movement, adding struts for tilt movement with latches to have neutral settings easily.
Regular model was produced since 1902.
Sanderson cameras have serial number following themselves, no matter for which model, so this helps for dating a camera. The range was 100 to 270000 (?) at the end.
Sanderson cameras were produced until 1939, but the most important part of it was before world war one.
The regular model is a “quarter plate” format, meaning 3"1/3x4"1/3.
The original shutter is a Bausch & Lomb Unicum one, but as this camera was often used by professionals, it is not unusual to find it with more recent and efficient shutter, changed by their owner.
On the shown camera, which serial number, 131xx, allows us to date it between 1910 and 1920, the shutter is a Unknown shutter with Dagor Anastigmat Serie III Lens, 125mm f:1/6,8.
Dimensions when camera is closed are : 15x15x11 cm, and full bellow extension is about 28,5cm.
There is a system avoiding the front panel going out of its rails when closing the camera.
The rails are also providing with infinite Stop system, to block lens board in rewind back movements.
The bed, which can be opened with an angle over 90 °, to use with wide angle lenses, is also featured with a level.
