Ensign Selfix 820 – 1955

Ensign Selfix 820

The British made Ensign Selfix 820 is built like a tank and sturdier than all other models, although the front standard is not as rigid as the Ikonta.

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 105mm f/3.8 lens. Purchased for £45 (summer 2016) it needed a full CLA and shutter repair.
