Description: The Graflex Folmer-Schwing Graphic Camera, which was manufactured under Eastman Kodak’s supervision, is a large-format camera made to take plates, rather than the more convenient roll film. Its two lenses and dual chamber make two separate, but virtually identical, exposures at the same time. The camera produced 5 x 7” plates, comparable to the negatives produced by the major stereoscopic companies such as Keystone View Company or Underwood & Underwood.
