The LAST German-made Agfa camera! This is a rare , very-well built , solid and handsome compact 35mm film camera from German camera maker Agfa. Model: Agfa COMPACT Complete with : 1. Original Agfa flash unit , and 2. Original nice soft leather? Case , in near mint condition!!! This camera was first introduced in 1980 , and was the LAST German-made Agfa camera (made in Munich , Germany). Later, the manufacturing was moved to Asia (Singapore). On the front, it is marked: ” Electronic Winder” around the lens. The lens is: Agfa Solinar 1:2.8 f=39mm. Top-o-the-line lens, according to some online info. Cosmetically , it is in excellent condition. Please see all pictures. Flash unit is also in great cosmetic shape. Case is extremely nice and soft, like new (very unexpected, because the majority camera cases from that era deteriorated badly, especially those Japanese cases). Both the camera and the flash unit use 2x AAA batteries. When two AAA batteries were inserted in, I was not able to get the shutter to fire. Don’t know what else is needed to get it to work. So it either needs to be fixed or something else needs to be done. From a blog on flickr… It was the stubborn Germanic answer to the Japanese tsunami that killed the German camera industry in the 60s and 70s. This was a moment of hope for AGFA, a return with a very interesting camera, where the attention to the design was surprising. The styling is very pleasant, a very small and original shape created by Schlagheck design of Munich…. Hard to find camera , with its original flash unit and case, making it even rarer (could be the only complete kit available online right now). 012911 Will be a great opportunity to add it to your collection!!
