This camera belongs to my dad. He has owned it from as long as I can remember. It was bought in 1972, and fro what he tells me, the film was big. At least bigger than the 35 mm films I have used throughout my life. Back then it cost him about a dollar and a half (according to today’s exchange rates). But the control this gives, I haven’t seen in film cameras worth fifty dollars. Just to enumerate the controls, it has two aperture controls, with signs of cloud and sun (pretty good for someone who doesn’t know how to control exposure). The third one is a yellow filter. The small pointer on the left of the lens is the one that controls these. The shutter control, unlike many cameras that I have seen is beside the lens (the one on the right) and not on top of the camera. To put in the film, one would have to open the entire back cover. The back cover has a small opening covered with a red glass. I guess old films were coated with gelatin. But it makes me wonder about the sensitivity of the film to red light. Put in short, even if it is a Twin Lens Reflex, it’s a classic beauty. So, a few days ago, dad tells me that he wants to sell this on ebay, so I get it out of the old rusty trunk and take a few snaps. And although it can’t be used anymore because of the unavailability of the film, I’m still not sure if to get it sold. It’s some good stuff one would like to have.

I have all my Dad's old cameras! 🙂 Reply I got one too and i would love to take pictures. Has anyone found the film ? Reply @Johnster I don't think you can get the films "anywhere" now. It's obsolete. Even getting the standard 35 mm films is a pain now. Reply No, you can find the film anywhere. 120 is the standard medium format for film; go to any professional film service shop and you'll find a variety of 120 films.It's not obsolete at all! (actually, the lomography craze has rekindled amateur interest in medium format film because the Holga takes it). Reply @Anonymous Thanks.. I really didn't know about that. I'll try going to one, but I'll have to search for it in here, which is the hardest part as hardly anything is listed on the Internet in this country.. Reply Dear Mr Sudipto, Hi!

Check it out! http://www.lomography.com Reply i too have one but i never took a snap .but i seen the photos its black and white Reply Can we use colour roll on it? Sorry for my ignorance on cameras… 🙂firstname.lastname@example.org Reply Yeah, color film is no problem, notice though the yellow filter is made for B/W photography, and unless you want yellow tinted photos can't be used. I own both an Agfa Click I, II and an Agfa Clack, all of those are fine with color film. Good luck! Reply Its a medium format camera. Considered rare. Prices of good condition camera are around Rs. 5000/-. Keep it, if possible but some flims aswell. Reply I found this one and the Agfa Synchro Box in my grand father's old cupboard today and i am not selling either. Now finding film for it will be a challenge Reply Dear Ms Mousumee, Hi!
