The Ansco Shur-Flash was basic box camera with flash attachment that was introduced by Ansco in 1953. It was a popular box camera made with a water resistant fiber body covered in black imitation leather and a metal faceplate and viewer. It was capable of capturing eight 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch exposures on standard 120 roll film. The camera was fitted with a fixed focus single meniscus lens for taking photos from about 8 feet to infinity. The guillotine shutter provided snap shot speed of about 1/40 of a second. The Ansco Shur-Flash camera was originally priced at $4.95 and the complete outfit with camera, Anscoflash Type III flash attachment, film and flash bulbs costs $9.75. The two AA batteries for the flash were not included. The camera pictured here is in good condition and comes in the original box with the flash unit and 10 flash bulbs.
