This film, which produced a negative film of 5 x 8 cm, was quickly
challenged by the Kodak film format 127 allowing 8 or 12 snapshots,
depending of the camera used.
The format 129 was allowing no more than 6. Kodak stopped the production
of the format 129 in January 1951.
The woody camera body is covered with a blue tissue which is embossed
on the front and back sides. The designation of the camera "ENSIGN E29"
appears on the front side, around the lens. On the back side, the name
of the camera maker "Houghton-Butcher Ldt - London" is mentioned.
The shutter is rotative and offers two speeds : Pause T and "Instantaneous"
