Vintage Collectors 1953 Ilford Envoy Bakerlite
CameraThe Envoy was fitted with an Optimax lens
which could be set for 2 positions of focussing;
notice the instructions around the lens reads "For
Faces Pull Out - For Places Push In." For close-up
portraits (FACES), at a distance of 4-8ft, the lens
is pulled OUT, and for more distant subjects or
views (PLACES) the lens is pushed IN. This was the
only camera setting movement required or possible.
When all was ready the snapshot was taken via the
"downward smooth acting push-button release of the
single speed shutter".The Envoy took 8 pictures,
sized 2¼"x3¼" on 120 or 620 roll film. The body
was formed of shock-resistant black plastic
mouldings. Designed to provide "excellent snapshots
for those with the minimum of photographic
knowledge." The shape allowed comfortable eye level
handling and the direct vision viewfinder showed a
brilliant (though much size reduced) picture of the
subject.A fabulous vintage fully working camera.
Great for retro photography and collectors.
