Chronology of cameras Agfa Ansco 

Traduction de D.C.

The Shur Shot is a box camera that has been made available with two film formats , the “B-2” ( film 120) and the “D-6” (film 116).
Different faceplate designs  exist. under the brand Agfa Ancso, then Ansco (from 1943).


On the side of the camera, a pull-out bar  marked “diaphragm” allows for the selection of two apertures. Surprise! At mid travel of the bar, a yellow filter is inserted in the lens.
A smaller pull out bar allows for time selection between bulb exposure and snapshot.
