Houghton Ensign Selfix 20

The Ensign Selfix 20 exists in several variations. It has a folding viewfinder and a quilting imitation coating. Others have a more conventional coating, but a more exuberant shutter plate. In these models, struts kinematic is complex, to facilitate the positioning of the optical unit.

This folding camera is dual format, it can make 6 x 9 cm or 4.5 x 6 cm images with an internal cache. It seems that the viewfinder has no setting possibility according to the format.
