The Burke & James "Ingento" Studio Camera was a heavyweight large piece of photo studio furniture, more a photography machine than just a photographic apparatus. It could make full size exposures on 8×10inch film plates. In the camera shown above a reducer for adapting 5x7 inch plates is installed. The lens, probably a portrait lens, is made by Darlot of Paris. The lower half of the apparatus is a massive wooden table with built-in mechanical facility to regulate height and built-in gear mechanics for tilting. The upper part is a very large variant of a tailboard type view camera which seems to offer more sturdyness than flexibility. The only possible tailboard movement seems to be the forward/backward adjustment for focusing.
