History Of Use
The Ansco Studio Outfit #5 camera is a relatively obscure device, with little research information available. The camera first makes appearances in catalogues around 1930 and is seen until the 1940s. The camera is built with cherry, mahogany, and basswood. What made this camera and stand ideal for studio photographers was the construction of the camera and stand that allowed all adjustments from the focusing point. The stand permitted tilting from 10 degrees upward to 25 degrees downward, and height adjustment from 17 inches to 34 ½ inches from the floor. The camera also features a long focal range from 7 ½ inches to 42 inches, made possible by an extra inside lens board. Additionally, the camera has a sliding carriage with automatically locking positions, to permit “splitting” negatives without refocusing. Missing from our camera is the built in holder on the front for reversible backs and negative divider masks, as well as the container on the side that would hold film and plates.
