Agfa Isolette V

Agfa Isolette V My version of the Agfa Isolette V has a Agfa Agnar 85mm, f:4.5 lens instead of the more common Apotar Lens.

These cameras came with either a Prontor (marked "Pronto") or the cheaper Vario shutter. The view finder ist just a very basic, small peep-hole in the top cover but it works.

Negative format is 6 x 6 cm which is very large compared to the camera dimensions. Lens quality is fine for normal use but of course you cannot expect Hasselblad Quality from this camera designed for the masses.
