Houghton Ross Ensign Fulvueflex synchroflash

This is the last camera produced by Ross Ensign after the Ful-Vue Super which used 620 film.
It is a pseudo TLR because there is no adjustment of distance. Only the choice between instant and time exposure is offered.
Despite its appearance quite a bit flashy, it is a low-end, all-plastic device (including the lens). Some even say that it was manufactured in Asia. It remains interesting aesthetically.
It sold poorly and Ross Ensign ceased its activity. Sad end for the creators of the EnsignMidget, the Ensignette, the Selfix, Autorangeor Double 8.
