Agfa Billy 2

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

The sales point of this camera was its small size and its weight, light, making it possible to as well place it in the pockets of Mister as in the bag at hand of Madam. (To be looked at certain publicities for the numerical ones of today, one realizes that the arguments hardly changed)

The standard model is equipped with an anastigmat lens Igestar F. 7,7 (written Jgestar). The shutter allows the 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 and B.

There was a variant with retarder, others sheathed color and one, called of luxury, way crocodile, with bellows in skin and fittings silver plated. The model the "grand luxe" has a lens SolinearF. 4,5 and Compur shutter or a anastigmat OpparF. 4,5 and Compur shutter.

In 1931, this camera was worth 275 francs .
