The Ensign Ful-Vue TLR is a very simple camera to operate. However, if certain precautions are taken, decent results are possible.

This camera has been a favorite of mine from the first time I saw one in the pages of McKeown’s. It took some time to locate a beautiful example at a reasonable price. After replacing the Rubylith window, the Ful-Vue was ready for its first roll of film.
