Chronology of cameras Ace Camera 

Traduction de D.C.

This twin lens box has been built during the mid fifties in Bombay (India) by the company Ace Camera Equips. PVT LTD. It looks like the Anscoflex II manufactured by Ansco and shown here .
We may suppose that this company purchased the manufacturing license from Ansco at the time the production of the Anscoflex II ceased.
Surprisingly, the copy was more enhanced than the original. The Sure Flex offered on its front face one selector on each side of the taking lens. The first one for selecting between two diaphragm stops and the other one for choosing between two shutter speeds.
These selectors did not exist on the Anscoflex II.
This camera is in very poor state. Decades of exposure to warm and humid environment damaged it. It has been found on a shelf of a small shop in Chennai on the South-east coast of the country.
