The Bass No. 1048
Made in the U.S.A. ca. 1910
Price on Request



The film industry in the U.S. was really on a tear and many European camera makers weren't able to keep up with the changes a busy cameraman demanded. One of the changes was to make viewing for critical focus through the side door instead of through the rear of the camera. This eliminated the viewing tube that ran the length of the camera between the film magazines. This made it possible to get the twointernal film magazines to touch each other and made the camera more compact. Bass also made it possible to take the slack out of your film by turning knobs that came through the outside of the camera.
