Item details

Agat 18K is a 35mm film half frame viewfinder camera made by Vilejka for MMZ (Belomo), Minsk, Belarus (in former USSR), and produced between 1988-97. АГАТ = AGAT is a special name in Russian.

Camera identical to its predecessor, Agat 18 with some technical improvements. The camera is one of the smallest and definitely the lightest half frame 35mm cameras that you can buy.
