The British Ferrotype Company was a camera maker based in Blackpool, England, making the Telephot magazine cameras for miniature ferrotype plates, from ca. 1905 to 1915. The metal-bodied camera is shaped like a telescope. It uses ¾" ferrotype plates. After each exposure, the exposed plate is released to fall into the developing tank below the camera. The unexposed plates are held in a magazine behind the exposure position, and pushed forward by a spring. The Telephot has simple gun-sights as a viewfinder.

Cameras of the same general type were also sold by Romain Talbot in Berlin, and by the Chicago Ferrotype Company; both of these, however, use 1" plates.
