Chronology of cameras Ansco 

Traduction de Manuel M

This camera is of big size (the format of film makes it possible to obtain negative 8 X 10.5). It very robust, all metal, is covered with a very thick leather. This one has difficulty to remain stuck on alloy, undoubtedly of Zamac type. Besides it misses the low part of sleeving, the American seller on Ebay being arranged for masking this major defect in its ad.

What holds more the attention, they are the two crutches. They have a very unusual form. Largest, that which allows the vertical support, retracts itself behind the lens-holder plate, by marrying forms of the point of tie of the bellows on this plate.

It is noticed that the format n°3 is absent from catalogs Photo-Plait for this model.
