    Hello Toy camera users,
    Does anyone know the approximate shutter speed and aperture of an Ansco B-2 Cadet box camera? I know it's not exactly a toy camera, but it doesn't really fit into any forum here, and you toy camera people are a resourceful lot...

    Thanks for that, but what about the aperture? Also, the B-2 Cadet doesn't have T.

    Thanks for the link, Jon. I must have a slightly different B-2, because mine doesn't have T, and the wind lever is styled round plastic instead of a metal key. Still, the handle says B-2 Cadet on it, so I guess I'll keep looking.
