The No. 2 Conley View camera is made with mahogany finish throughout, all of the woodwork except the bed being Spanish cedar and the bed itself cherry, because of its greater strength. The workmanship is first class in every detail, and the construction is extra strong, substantial and rigid, adapting the camera to the hard requirements of the professional photographer at the same time making it an ideal camera at the best black keratol, lined with lightproof gossamer cloth, and while the focal capacity is sufficient for all ordinary requirements, it is not long enough for such work as copying in full size or the use of extra long focus lenses for special landscape work etc. For special long focus work, we recommend the No. 1 Conley View Camera described on the following page. Adjustments. This camera is focused with a fine rack and pinion movement made with diagonal rack, the finest rack and pinion focus movement made, as this diagonal rack overcomes all lost motion and results in a very smooth, perfect action.

The bed is made of selected cherry, in two sections with piano hinge and is extra strong and rigid. Prices without lens or shutter.
