The Summa is a plate camera for plates up to 9x12 cm, made in about 1950 by Tiranti of Rome. It has a lens-turret on the front, like those on many cine cameras, allowing the mounting of up to three lenses, with focal lengths between 150 and 210 mm.[1] Dario Mondonico described the camera as having a double shutter release and a viewfinder for several focal lengths, with automatic parallax-correction; features retained by the later and smaller Summa Report. He stated that the camera could be used to make four separate 3x4 cm photographs on a single 6.5x9 cm plate.[1]
