capturing the world through the viewfinder of an old camera
Alison in Vermont here again. How did you take this bit of hardware off?
actually that wasn't so easy to get off. This was an early experiment before I realized I could get in and clean it without breaking anything.Start with the back screws you see here, each thing you take apart will lead to another. Undoing these will be enough to get the top glass out to clean and will give you access to the mirror for cleaning and the back of the front face lens for cleaning.The Ansco lenses are unusual because they are very large and they are glass not plastic. They are bright and let in a lot of light.Many ttv cameras work well when dirty and dusty. These lenses are too nice to not have clean. A clean Ansco will serve you well in ttv. Save the dirty lens for an Argus or Duaflex or more common base camera.
