The Ansco Panda camera was manufactured by ANSCO from approximately 1939 to 1950. The camera was constructed of molded black plastic with white plastic accents around the twin lens, the winder knob, and a red plastic tipped shutter release for a modern look. The focal length of the camera is 60 mm and it has an f/16 lens. Focus is fixed and objects from about 6' to infinity are in focus. Designed as a twin lens reflex, the Ansco Panda was capable of capturing twelve 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch square (6x6cm) exposures or nine 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 inch exposures on standard 620 roll film. Its appearance is quite similar to the Kodak Baby Brownie and was designed to compete directly with it. It featured a magnifying reflex type view finder that provided a bright image almost as big as the finished print. It was fitted with a fix focus single meniscus lens and snap shot shutter. The camera measures about 3 x 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 inches. The Ansco Panda camera was originally priced at $6.00 and later reduced as low as $3.95.
