This a lovely old German made Agfa Camera with its original brown leather case.
In good vintage condition.
Agfa Silette (original) is the first of the long lasting Silette series 35mm film viewfinder cameras made by Agfa and introduced in 1953.
Its features are a simple viewfinder, a leaf shutter, a lever wind advance and an accessory shoe (Agfa KM flash compatible). The camera is well made by with simple features. Its shutters are Pronto (1/25-1/200), Prontor (1/300) Compur-Rapid or Synchro-Compur (1/500). The lenses are three element Agfa Color Apotar 3.5/45mm or 2.8/45mm, or a four element Agfa Color Solinar 2.8/50mm. In the USA, it was known as the Ansco Memar.
Along the production time, there are 6 types with technical or cosmetic differences. e.g. type 4 has two windows of equal size. The purpose of the second window is intensified brightness in order to limit the centring errors due to the parallax. The lens is Color Apotar 2,8/45 mm.
Agfa used the name Silette without any model numbers in this first series.

In the event of loss or damage in transit, we are covered by Etsy's 'Seller Protection'.
Payments for items by PayPal ship the following working day.
Payments for items by Direct Checkout ship 3 working days after purchase as it takes that time for the funds to clear into our bank.
I'm afraid that I no longer accept checks or money orders from outside the UK, as it takes up to 8 weeks for them to clear and the banks charge to convert the currency.
