    In 1881 the Anthony firm began marketing a 4x5 inch camera outfit for only $10 in the national ad campaign “Dry Plate Photography for the Million.” I believe that this camera was the” Ne Plus Ultra Camera” shown in the 1883 catalogue: http://piercevaubel.com/cam/scovill/neaddd.htm and may well have been the first commercially produced 4x5 format camera. As shown in the catalogue, the Ne Plus Ultra was manufactured by “Scovill A & Co.” The Anthony firm merged with Scovill and Adams in 1902 and later became Ansco. For a historical background on the firm see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._%26_...ny_%26_Company

    Karl Benz invented it. Henry Ford made it affordable for everyone...not just a rich man's toy. Just like Eastman did for the camera.

    America's done a lot of good.... a LOT of good. But it's popular these days to ignore all of that. You just have to have thick skin.

    you are right. the prints sent back from the first "kodak were round .. images look nice round
    or with rounded corners, i think that is why for most of the photographic age there have been vignetted images ...
    and oval frames

    yup, "3A" size
    you can slide a barely trimmed piece of 5x7 paper in these cameras ( folder, slr &c )
    and it makes a perfect image with a beautiful border on the sheet.
