Ensign Selfix 16-20 – 1950

Ensign Selfix 16-20

The British made 645 Ensign 16-20 is built like a tank and sturdier than many other models, although the front standard is not as rigid as the others.

No rangefinder (distance focus scale only), just a simple but large Albada viewfinder. The body is satin chrome, black and leather clad which houses a notoriously unreliable (but serviceable) Epsilon shutter and Ross Xpres 75mm f/3.5 lens.

Purchased for £75 (fall 2016) it needed a full CLA, shutter repair and a missing DOF scale knob.
