Ansco Anscoflex II

Traduction de Manuel M

This pseudo-reflex camera is out of metal sheet, painted in khaki.
That appears strange because the first model was described as being out of plastic.
The two buttons located in front of make it possible to use a yellow filter (on the right) or to add a add lens (on the left). What is much less usual is the way of opening the upper hood which hides glass of centring. It is by going up the metal panel which hides the lens, that open automatically the two panels hiding viewfinder.
In 1956, this camera cost the USA, 18.95 dollars.
