This is the stylish Agfa Isolette III Folding Camera. This is a very clean camera, kept in its tidy leather case which is included. The leather bellows are in excellent condition. The shutter fires and the rangefinder works. I am not so sure about the focus ring. I have read these tend to be tough to move because of the old lubricant they used. If you are going to shoot with it, you should have it looked at by a pro anyhow.

The folding mechanism is super smooth and it makes the camera a true "pocket camera". It's about 4x6" when folded up. It takes 120 roll film. And you can switch it from 6x6 square to 4.5x6 format. I really love these cameras.

This camera is just beautiful! Very well taken care of. It has a nice solid feel, and everything seems to function smoothly. It has an awesome look to it too, even if you are just parking it on your shelf!

Condition:

Cosmetics - Excellent. Clean, no dents, minimal wear.
Lens - Looks clean and fairly dust-free and scratch-free.
Shutter - Fires well.
Bellows - seem light tight and supple
Mechanics - Pops open, folds up easily.

Specs:
Shutter speeds from B, 1s -1/300s
Lens - Agfa Apotar f4.5 85mm


Where did this camera come from? I purchased this one and many others at auction from a collection from a photography store. They seemed to have been cleaned professionally at one point, but they have been sitting around for some time. I only clean the outside, leatherette and big grungy bits very gently. I do not wipe lenses, I simply dust them a bit with a soft brush. I never use compressed air to clean my cameras as that may damage them and just blows the dust around. I do not test any camera with film, but I do test their mechanics. Any small or significant issues are always disclosed.
