Agfa Optima IA 35mm view finder camera, intriguing looking, in good working order. A camera that makes a statement
A real collectable camera for those View finder lovers out there.
This is in lovely condition and you can feel the quality in the design and manufacturing. If you always wanted a classic view finder this may be for you ! We love that the back opens like a Leica!
The camera has an optical bright frame finder with parallax marks and red or green signals for correct exposure in the view finder. The distance setting ring with symbols around the front lens element, and an aperture setting ring with separate aperture setting scales for B-mode or flash synchronized speed 1/30 seconds. The automatic exposure mode (A-mode, without flash) has to be switched on with the same ring. Film speed setting is possible only up to 200 ASA.
As with all antique cameras, it is very difficult to completely guarantee it's condition. However, it fires nicely, the view finder is clear, all apertures step down and the light meter swings enthusiastically
