The Ensign Midget is a delightful little camera that sits comfortably in the palm of your hand.
Launched in 1934, initially the camera was made in two variants, referred to as the A/D and A/N. The example is the A/N which had better optics than the A/D due to a focusing Ensar-Anastigmat lens. The camera's body measures just 9cm (3.5 inches) by 4.2cm (1.75 inches).
This Midget comes complete with its fragile folding frame finder as well as a small bright finder which nestles behind the lens panel and swings out for use. There is also an extensible leg which folds out from behind the lens panel to allow for stability in the vertical orientation. The camera serial number is stamped on this leg - H6847.
The cameras were originally sold with a black leather slipcase, which were often lost or destroyed over the past 80 years; this camera still has this original protection (see photo).
The shutter on the camera operates on all the settings (1/25, 70 and 100, plus T/B). The slipcase still functions in protecting the camera (see photo). This camera has some vintage tape around the red film frame viewing window to help with any light leakage through the window. The bellows appear tight-light from torch-tests.
Rarely found in this condition. From my experience, this will sell very quickly, so don't miss out.
