The Ansco Readyflash was a simple viewfinder-type camera with a fixed-focus lens, fixed aperture and single-speed shutter. Made in the 1950s, it took 620 film, giving 8 2¼" x 3¼" exposures on a roll. Its big feature was that it was flash-ready (hence the name); the lens mount had two flash terminals, synched to the shutter, to attach to a flashbulb unit. The body was a basic sheet-metal box, with removable lid, and plastic fittings carrying the lens, shutter and viewfinder.
