My friend Mat just moved house. Whilst shifting his belongings he found this. It’s an Ansco Memo II. He used it as a student some fifteen or so years ago. It’s been in his loft ever since.
It’s a half-frame, wind-up, 35mm camera. I’ve never seen one before but it’s the coolest little thing I’ve ever clapped eyes on.
There are a few pages on Flickr dedicated to it and I have managed to find a manual online. It produces 72 exposures from a 36 exposure film and it’s 25mm F2.8 lens has three focus settings – Close, near & far. What can go wrong?
