Gallus Stereo 1920

Tomei Collection



This is an early model of the rigid "jumelle" style using a 6 x 13 cm format. It is constructed of finely machined and engraved nickel-plated billet aluminum. It is equipped with Berthiot f/6.5 Series VI lenses, jewelled shutters that operate at 1/300 to 1/10 sec., and a large Archimedes type viewfinder.



This was among the most expensive versions of the stereo cameras produced by Usines Gallus in Courbevole, France, through the 1920's. The more common models are of painted metal construction and simple lenses.
