The Ansco Viking 6.3 is a folder 120 roll film camera. It was made to be a pocket camera. A button on the top plate operates the latch that opens the front of the camera like a draw bridge to expose the lens and bellows. The bellows remains in a fixed position and focusing is accomplished on the lens itself. The hinged back made film loading easier. The red window on the back has a lever operated cover that prevents light from reaching the loaded film. Push the lever to watch for the film frame number as the film is advanced. The tripod mounting hole on the camera bottom also serves as a handle type flash mounting hole. It has a cold shoe centered on the top plate. A small handle permanently fixed to one side also covers the button that opens the camera back. There is a fold out tab under the camera's front lid that will support the camera on a flat surface in the portrait position. Another small tab located just inside the front plate folds out to support the camera on a flat surface in the landscape position.
