The Agfa Click – I.

Another fun shooter from my collection. A very cool, very simple little film camera made in Germany from 1958-1970.

It uses 120 film and has a switch on the lens barrel with three settings: two are aperture sizes, ƒ8.8 (cloudy icon) and ƒ11 (sunny icon), plus a yellow filter which is also ƒ8.8.

It uses a single fixed convex-concave meniscus lens, has a rotary shutter with a speed of 1/30th of a second, and the camera has a slightly arched back-cover that serves as a film pressure plate.

This little guy takes sharp pictures from about 5 ft. to infinity and I’ve even used hand-held close-up filters over the front of the lens for decent macro shots…
