No. 6 Onondaga

Jump to: navigation, search

Made by Wilkin-Welsh. A very simple folding bed camera with single extension bellows. The lens standard allows limited vertical shift. A reflecting type finder and a distance scale are on the folding bed for use of the No. 6 Onondaga as hand camera. With a simple lever the lens standard can be fixed in the wanted distance setting. Usage as view camera is possible on a tripod. The camera with a simple achromatic meniscus lens in a Junior shutter did cost 10$, and 12½$ with Rapid Rectilinear lens.

Onondaga is the name of one of the five Iroquois Nations. One of Wilkin-Welsh's concurrents from Rochester (New York) had even chosen one of those names as company name: Seneca.
