Agfa Optima

Traduction de Manuel M

The exposure of this camera is completely automatic and programmed. The visible lever on the right, on the front face, allows when it is pushed at the same time as the shutter, located on the top, to reveal a green signal in the viewfinder, when the exposure is correct. If not, the signal is red and blocks the release.

Another feature characteristic of this model, first of the series of the Optima, is the cover which occults the slot synchro of the flash. To open it, it is necessary to turn the serrated roller which is with the basis of the lens.

There exists an alternative where the marked hub cap “Optimum” around the lens is of brown color.
