The Reflex-Ango (sold in the USA as the Goerz Folding Reflex) is a strut-folding SLR camera made by Goerz for a short time in 1910-11, and using Ottomar Anschütz' focal-plane shutter. It has a folding reflex viewing and focusing hood, similar to that on any box-form reflex camera of the period, but mounted at the top of the unpleated bellows section of the folding body; an ingenious and very compact design.
McKeown states that the camera was available with an f/4.8 Celor or f/6.8 Dagor or Syntor lens, and that the short period of its production was due to patent conflicts.
