1919 Akeley "Pancake" Camera
Serial # 108


This Akeley cranks smoother than any other I have seen. It is quiet and easy to crank.  When you let go of the crank after getting up to speed, the crank continues another 7 revolutions on its own. The camera scratch tested wonderfully with no scratches to the emulsion or to the base.

The lens is a Carl Zeiss Jena 210MM F/4.3 and is clear and the iris moves easily. The focus is done through a rod that terminates at the carrying handle.
