AGFA 110 POCKET CAMERAS - other cameras


version française

Agfa has therefore been one the first manufacturers of cameras in the format 110 and to produce the range of Agfamatic that has known a great success deserved.
Agfa has produced a lot models (to see comparison table) which possess all the following elements:
A body with aluminum part and design issued of the Minox, the "Repitomatic" film advance system, a red type release "Sensor" and a loading of the film door that opens downward. All these elements have been described in the page on Classic Agfamatic.

Here are some other interesting models:


· Agfa Autostar pocket

(1976) Lens: fixed-focus "Color Optar" of 26mm. The instructions claim a focus range from about 1.2 meters / 4 feet to infinity. No speed choice, film advance by button and very simple viewfinder. The model "Autostar" is always the model the cheapest and simplest in the Agfa range. It is the alone Agfa pocket without release button Sensor but with a large button of metal.
No aluminum but a body in plastic matter and in iron built in Germany, India and Brazil. No metallic wrist-chain but a black nylon strap, Magicube (Flash-cube with mechanical activating) plug.
