The Envoy Wide Angle was 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 took 6x9 images on 120 film, or could have a plate holder fitted. The shutter was 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.

Edit 10 November 2011 by johnnyh4 :- I have also just seen, on ebay (so the volatile picture is not linked), one with an "ENVOY" badged shutter having T B 25 50 100 175 (needs identification if any body can recognise it).
