The sliding ground glass carriage is held firmly in position by a simple spring catch. This attachment permits the operator to make negatives full size, or to quickly slide the focusing-back to the right or left of center when making two exposures on a film or plate.

The Reversible Adapter Backs have spring actuated ground glass screens and take Double Portrait Film or Plate Holders. They snap into either vertical or horizontal position on the sliding carriage. The Reversible Adapter Backs are made in three sizes - 11 x 14, 8 x 10 and 5x7. Therefore, three different sizes of film or plates may be used with the No. 8 Camera, or two sizes with the No. 7 Camera.

Metal wing diaphragms fitting the back frame of the sliding carriage are used when making two 7 x 11 negatives with the 11 x 14 back, two 5x8 negatives with the 8 x 10 back, or two 3 1/2x5 negatives with the 5x7 back.

The Semi-Centennial Stand is well known for its ease and simplicity of operation as well as the extreme range of elevation provided. With the Studio Camera in position, the spring actuated elevating device is counterbalanced. When the lock is released, the platform can be lowered to within 14 inches of the floor or raised to a height of 49 inches, and again quickly locked in position. The back of the stand platform is raised or lowered by turning a conveniently located handle. A triangular metal base is provided with rubber tired casters enabling the operator to easily and noiselessly move the entire outfit about the floor and lock it in position with a slight pressure of the foot upon the stand jack. The stand is sturdily built throughout and, with the exception of the metal base, is finished in mahogany to harmonize with the camera.

The Century Studio Outfit No. 4 is especially designed to meet the demand for light, compact, sturdily built apparatus at moderate cost. The camera is made of mahogany and cherry, attractively finished in the natural wood. All of the working parts are similar to those provided with the No. 7 and No. 8 Outfits. Full size negatives are made by focusing upon the 8 x 10 Ground Glass Screen, which is then replaced by the Curtain Slide Holder. The cabinet attachment is not automatic. The regular 5x7 Curtain Slide Holder is carried at one end of the attachment, and a Ground Glass Screen at the other. The operator slides the carriage first, bringing the focusing screen into position. With this attachment two exposures can be made on a 5x7 plate in horizontal position. The No. 4 Century Studio Stand is substantially constructed of hard wood, mahogany stained and finished. The platform is raised or lowered by a self-locking device. The Stand rests upon three rubber tired casters, and may be quickly locked in position with the Century Jack. The Century Studio Outfit No. 4 includes the 8 x 10 Studio Camera; one 8 x 10 light weight Curtain Slide Holder; one 8 x 10 detachable Ground Glass Focusing Screen; one 5x7 Cabinet Attachment; one 5x7 Curtain Slide Holder, and No. 4 Century Stand and Holder Rack.
