Ensign Midget Model 55 — a miniature camera designed to take the Ensign E 10 type of film and deliver photographs in the 3.5 x 4.5 cm format. The camera was manufactured between 1934 and 1940 by a London-based company called Houghton (UK). The camera is equipped with an Ensar f = 6.3 lens. Typically during the interwar period, simple miniature cameras intended primarily for beginners were also made in more complex versions. One of such cameras is the Ensign Midget. The Ensign Midget is a strut-braced folding camera. Interestingly enough, the camera came with two types of viewfinders: a reflecting brilliant type and a metal frame (sports) viewfinder.
The tiny cuboidal body with rounded corners is made of metal and coated with black paint giving it a decorative texture. The lens panel in the form of a rectangular plate with an Ensar lens (with a polygonal metal plate reading “ENSIGN MIDGET”) mounted in the centre of it can be folded out and connected with the body by means of a bellows.
