Out of it's box. by LordLJCornellPhotos Out of it's box. by LordLJCornellPhotos
I picked this little gem up recently. It is an Ensign Greyhound folding pocket camera from around the 1930s. I was very pleased it had it's box. It looks like it should work too :)

Sounds also cool. I got myself a new lens for my medium format - the Zeiss 180mm F2.8 portrait lens. :-)
