Ansco Panda

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Two large eyes, a white muzzle, a very black body, a white ear…. it is undoubtedly what is worth its name in this small Ansco.
It is about a small very simple camera without any setting. The viewfinding is pseudo TLR. The lens opens to 14. The shutter allows the 1/50 of second. As my Quebec friend Alain Laflamme announces it, the name Panda is often partly erased, undoubtedly by the repeated friction of a finger at the time of the shootings, but especially by a poor quality of painting.
This 620 made of bakelite was produced during the Forties.
Enough common on the North-American market, where in May 1950, it was worth $4,54, its coast remains rather weak.
