The Ansco Anscoflex II is an unusual enameled-metal pseudo TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) with a large lens cover which slides up to form the viewfinder hood. It was built in the USA by Ansco from 1954 to a design by Raymond Loewy and was discontinued in 1956. The aperture (f/11) and shutter speed are fixed. It takes 6x6cm images on 620 film, wound by a large, ratcheted knob in the side that went to the next frame with a back and forth motion. It retailed for $27.95 in a 1956 Sears catalog. The camera was advertised as an inexpensive easy to use quality camera. It also has a two element meniscus f/11 lens, rotary shutter, ¼ inch 20 thread tripod mount, close up lens from 3 ½ to 7 feet, yellow filter for sunlight defusing, normal focus range is 6 feet to infinity, grey leather camera cover, and a shutter speed of 1/60 of a second. This camera also comes with an Anscoflash Type IV unit that uses two C batteries and takes SF, SM, or M2 flash bulb for all distances. The camera came as a set in a brown hard leather covered case. Included was the flash unit, two C batteries, four flash bulbs, and the camera in its leather covering.
