Ostensibly designed as a children’s camera, the Ansco Panda has fared well over the years. Produced between 1939 and 1950, the Panda is a simple Twin Lens Reflex (TLR)-like camera , though it more closely resembles Kodak Brownies of the period.

It has a waist level viewfinder, f16 lens and uses 620 format film, producing square images.
