Vintage 1950s Anscoflex camera with all its original bells and whistles. The complete set includes the camera, leather case, strap, flash unit, instruction book, 10 flash bulbs, and the original carrying case.

The Anscoflex is a great 1950s classic camera, designed by Raymond Loewy in 1954 for ANSCO. Made in USA.

TLR format and size. Was marketed as a quality, affordable, easy to use camera. Camera is made of durable, clean looking green-grey metal. It has a protective front panel that slides up and, when raised, smoothly opens the viewfinder cover at the top. Fixed aperture (f/11) and shutter speed (1/60). Designed to use 620 film (readily available 120 film can be adapted for 620). Focusing range is 6' to infinity. Extremely simple and logical functions (the large knob on the side winds the film between shots).

Of the accessories, the leather case is a matching green-grey that fits perfectly around the camera and snaps and screws into place. The flash unit has a dial and screw mechanism and takes simple household batteries. The case is a rigid shell covered in a brown leather or leatherette.

Great condition. Shutter works well. See the last photo for image through viewfinder. The camera saw very little use, apparently, and was kept very clean. Very, very few signs of time, wear or age. The case is intact but the handle has been cut (it probably cracked, the only common flaw in this great mid century package). I am including all 10 flashbulbs and even the batteries (they're clean) included in the case. Not sure if they all work, but the flash unit and camera sure do.

* international buyers please note: shipping rates are estimates. The shop will refund your overages of $2 and more once the package is weighed and the shipping label is run. It's our policy.
