Agfa Agfamatic 1000 Pocket

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

I believe that much among you who reach fifty today will have some memories by traversing the pages devoted to the 110 Agfa.

Like that of Instamatic Kodak, the silhouette of Agfamatic marked the 70s. That gifts of communion!!!!

The characteristic form of Agfamatic is that of a rectangular, two-tone case (black and silver), of which the laterally sliding part is used at the same time of protective mask of the lens and winding lever. The silhouette is supplemented by a metal dragonne, very fashion ... of this time.(Me, she points out to me the foot of the lamp of my desk of then, which I could twist in all the directions when the duties of maths irritated me a little too much). On these cameras, the shutter release was characteristic, since it was about a “sensor” (see the cards of the 126).
Compared to other Agfamatic, the 1000 fact appears of poor relation. Because overall, the camera makes more "sheet" that the majority of other Agfamatic.Here not of brushed aluminum, but of the iron painted in black. Moreover, the 1000 that I see in secondhand trade often have the air in worse state than of other Agfamatic.It is well a basic model of the series (with Sensor nevertheless). The winding is ensured by a button to make slide below the camera and not by the aperture/closing of the case. The finder is very simple; two pieces of plastic.The sliding part of the case is retained by the latch of the door by which one charges film. Thus to change film, should completely be removed the sliding part. There is NO setting on this camera. Speed is 1/100 second, which passes automatically to the 1/50 second with the flash. 

The lens is Color Agnar 9,5/26 mm (fixed-focus lens).
