Folding camera with leather bellows
Sizzle and Burn, Arcane Society Book 3.
The Tarasov Camera is a bellows-style folding field camera housed in a square brown wooden box with a leather strap handle positioned on the top. The camera was developed by scientists in the former USSR to photograph human auras. In the hands of an operator with specific paranormal talents, the camera can be used to disrupt or distort an aura and the consequence can be psychic trauma or death. The camera has been used to kill once, possibly twice. The camera was stolen from a Russian lab by a J & J agent and is currently held in the Jones family vault.
