Goerz-Anschütz Ango Stereo, early model image by Süleyman Demir (
Image rights) Goerz-Anschütz cameras have a fast rouleau-shutter (a focal plane shutter) that Goerz had licensed exclusively from its inventor Ottomar Anschütz from Lissa in Posen.
Ottomar Anschütz (1846-1907) had invented the rouleau-shutter, 1/1000, in 1883.
These were mainly, strut folding cameras, known as Ottomar Anschütz or Goerz-Anschütz cameras.
Many of them branded Ango as word derivation for
Anschütz and Goerz.
The first one was the Goerz-Anschütz Moment-Apparat (1890), a box camera for 9x12cm plates with a good lens mounted on the front plate.
Model list is as to McKeown's
and Historic Cameras 
(First four are in a separate page)
