Agfa Optima Rapid 500V

Traduction de Manuel M

The Rapid Optima 500 V was presented at the same time as the Isorapid IC, than Isomat-Rapid C and the Optima-Rapid 125 C, in 1966, at the time of Kina. The Optima Rapid 250V had been presented previously.
The 500 is fully automatic, disengageable for the long poses and the exposures with the flash. The automatism allows speeds until the 1/500 (from where its name). In the viewfinder, a green/red signal indicates the quality of the exposure.
