This is one of the biggest folder of my collection.
Made by Ansco in Binghamton N.Y. USA from circa 1916 to 1931. It bears the model name "No3A Junior".
It must be loaded with type 122 rollfilms, obviously not available nowadays, to produce 8.25 x14 cm big negatives.
It is equipped with a "Splendor" 1:6.2, f 165 mm lens on a Betax N°2 Wollensak shutter (1/2 sec à 1/100 sec + B et T).
We may notice the oddly shaped supporting foot.
The camera weights nearly one kilogram.

One of the photos shows the camera close to a Semflex TLR of my collection to give some sort of scale.
