Ful-Vue Super camera with fixed lens manufactured by Ross-Ensign Ltd, England, circa 1954.
It takes 6cm × 6cm photographs on 120 roll film and has a shutter speed of 1/30 sec. Focussing was by possibly pulling the lens out for close exposures.

Marcel Natkin [1904-1962], writer, is quoted as saying of this camera: 'The Ful-Vue camera is really a very simple camera. It consists of a light-tight box. In front of the box there is a hole, over which the lens is fixed. Behind this hole is the shutter. There is a second lens in a second box above it. This produces a picture on the viewfinder on top of the camera. In the back of the box is another hole covered by a red window. This helps you in winding the film on, which you do by the knob at the side of the box near the top.'.
