Horizontal Stat Camera

Here it the mechanical drawing of the horizontal Stat camera. This unit was very large and required three of four times the amount of space than that of a vertical camera. As I said in class, the back portion of the unit was typically in a darkroom and the lights and copy plate were out in a lighted room. They both essentially did the same thing, just the horizontal had a larger reduction and enlargement capability.

Both units could produce either positive or negative, paper or film. With the advent of computers and Desktop Publishing, this type of equipment was rendered obsolete.
