Agfa Optima Rapid 250

Traduction de Manuel M

The Optima Rapid 250 is with automatic exposure, ordering the shutter speed and the aperture. This automatism is disengageable for the use with the flash or in B.position
The cell is with selenium.

The focusing is done thanks to 3 pictograms.

The flash can be connected only by the shoe contact.

The button of shutter release is on the cylindrical component of the lens where one also finds a threading for cable release.

There is no system of rewinding since this camera uses the Rapid cassette and that, in this system, the film is thorough of a debtor cartridge towards a receiving cartridge which is then replaced by the empty cartridge.
