The Agfa Billy folder camera is a classic German camera made in 1951. It uses readily available 120 film and takes huge 6x9 cm negatives producing beautiful big prints. It's in good condition, working as it should. It's a very handsome camera.

The lens is an Agnar 105mm f/6.3. It's sharp but also produces smooth blurred effects (bokeh), in areas that are out of focus. Shutter speeds are 1/25 sec to 1/200, plus B.

I've used these cameras, they take great photographs, like the one on the sidebar. This is the perfect vintage camera to carry around, it's light and compact and when folded it will fit in a large pocket. Comes with a very good brown leather case.

The camera has been tested, it's in good vintage condition, fully functional with everything working. Body covering has a small piece missing. Chrome on the support is tarnished, and the black paint is a little scratched (see photo).

Do please contact me if you have any questions!
