Gaumont Stereo Spido Ordinaire 8.5 x 17
Typical of its era, the Spido was made with a leather covered wood body. The lens panel slides over to shoot mono panoramic shots. Although more portable in concept than a folding bed camera, the truth is all 8.5 x 17 cameras, as dictated by their plate size, are quite large. Large cameras like this were not as popular with ammateur photographers, so are much less common than 45 x 107 or 6 x 13 models.
