Houghton Ensign Autorange 220

Traduction de Manuel M

The Autorange is, in a way,  a Selfix equipped with a rangefinder. This one has a very small basis and must be not very precise. It takes place on the hood (I see more one horizontal use than vertical). The adjustment of distance is very curiously located. It is a lever integrated into the flap, just under the lens/shutter unit.

The integration of the rangefinder is successful rather well and the design, smooth, of the hood appears even modern for the Thirties. The publicity evokes the Streamline besides.
