  1. hej.. i have just bought an ensign full vue box camera and im not sure how to
    open it so i can put the 120 film roll in it..??? somebody ho can help me??
  2. there should be a round knob on the side that allows you to open it.
  3. On my Fulvue, the winder knob is on the right hand side, and on the left hand side there's a knob marked lock/unlock, you turn this to unlock then pull on the whole left side of the case, it comes away.
  4. AE is right, the side pulls off. Trouble is, if it's been sitting around for years it can seize up, so you may need to lever it off with a screwdriver. Don't worry, this camera is not a precision instrument. The viewfinder is wonderful, shame about the cr#ppy taking lens. Anyway, it's an enjoyable 50s retro camera.
  5. Oh, and it also has a shutter mechanism so simple even I can dismantle and repair it :)
