BURKE & JAMES 5x7 REMBRANDT PORTRAIT CAMERA:
$204

The Burke & James Company, Chicago, made wooden view and press cameras in the 40's and 50's. The 5x7 Rembrandt was designed for fine portraiture, since film quality had dramatically improved and 8x10 cameras were too cumbersome for school portraits. The camera comes with two film backs; a full 5x7 back and a split 5x7 (two 3 1/2 x5's on a single 5x7 sheet). With one 5x7 sheet film holder holding two sheets of 5x7 film, one could photograph a graduating senior and give him/her a full sitting of four proofs, the standard in those days. I am including a 5x7 sheet film holder with the camera. The camera is equipped with a built in packard shutter operated with an included rubber hose and bulb, and a front shutter, Ilex No.4 Acme, with shutter speeds of 1 sec. to 150th sec, B and T (bulb and time). F stops range from 4.5 to 32.The lens is a No.33 Kodak Anastigmat f/4.5 7 1/2 inch. There are two posts on the front added later enabling the photographer to synchronize electronic flash with the packard shutter.
The condition of the camera is really good, considering it is over 60 years old. There is some scratching and finish deterioration on the bottom of the base, and some very light scratches on the body. This could easily be restored with a little furniture restoration product.There is no rust on the metal parts, the ground glass is clean and chip free, the bellows looks great with no apparent light leaks. You could start taking pictures as it is! I don't know if 5x7 film (b&w of course) exists any more. But this camera would be a fine addition to any portrait camera collection!
