Vintage Folmer Graflex Corp FingerPrint Camera
Vintage Folmer fingerprint camera made by Graflex corp between 1917-1929. This is a copy camera that was built for making 1:1 photographic copies of finger-print cards or other 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" photos or documents. A Kodak Anastigmat 72mm f/6.3 lens is recessed inside the flat-black rigid shroud and is pre-focused on the plane of the opening in the front of the shroud. To make an exposure, the shroud opening is placed directly on the surface to be photographed. Four battery-operated flashlight bulbs inside the shroud illuminate the subject during exposure. This camera has two extra lamps inside. It is marked on the outside with OSP which is believed to represent the Oregon state police.
