Anscoflex II

If you have an interest in classic cameras, you're probably familiar with this one. Designed by Raymond Loewy and made of metal, the Anscoflex features a protective front panel which, when raised, opens the viewfinder cover at the top via a clever mechanical linkage.

The difference between this model and the original Anscoflex is that this one has the addition of a close-up lens and yellow filter, which swing into place by turning the knobs beneath the lens.

 

Made by Ansco (New York) c1954
