General Houghton Ensign Cupid Information

 The Ensign Cupid is a small sheet-metal bodied camera made by British manufacturer Houghton-Butcher under their Ensign brand, c.1922. The viewfinder is a simple folding frame. The camera uses dual red windows to shoot in 2-1/4" x 1-1/2" format, giving "twelve pictures for the price of six."[1] The camera was relatively cheap, at 18s-6d.

The camera uses several patents, including British Patent 13246 (W.H. Harvey, 1914) - for using two red windows for doubling the number of (half-sized) exposures on a film roll, by using each number twice; this is possibly the first camera to use this arrangement. Later models are marked with BP 207637, covering the shutter design. Patents 194897 and 194897 are also marked.

There were three finishes produced, crackle black (the most common), smooth black (on early examples) and dark blue. An accessory brilliant finder was available.

Camera House Price: £139.00
