Ensign Selfix was a long-running range of folding cameras made by Houghton-Butcher and its successors — part of an extensive series of Ensign cameras.


The Selfix range was designed for 6x4.5, 6×6 or 6×9cm exposures. Some of the cameras were dual-format, allowing a negative size reduction by means of an accessory mask. These masks were hinged, a clever design that prevents it being lost, and cameras with this capability had the extra red window accommodating the different sizes.
