The Envoy Wide Angle is a box camera with a flip-up sports finder, designed for wide-angle photographs. Fitted with a Taylor-Hobson 64mm f6.5 fixed-focus lens, it takes 6x9 images on 120 film, or can have a plate holder fitted. The shutter is either a Prontor with speeds from 1/10-1/150s, an Epsilon 1s-1/250s or, later, a Synchro-Compur-P running from 1s-1/500s. It was marketed by, but not badged as, Ilford, and manufactured by Photo Developments Ltd of Birmingham, England.
