This is a cool Agfa Billy 6x9 folding camera. Its a really well made and attractive camera. Someone has taken very good care of it over the years. (Except for the leather handle that has been taped.) Bright, shiny chrome and a super clean metal covering. Still has the take-up spool as well. It takes 120 roll film and with a bit of lens cleaning you can take her out for a spin! And a great potential camera to shoot with!

Made in England around 1946. This little Penguin is ready to go!

Condition:
Cosmetics - Excellent. No dents, dings or damage.
Lens - Looks fungus and scratch-free. Needs cleaning.
Shutter - Fires well at all speeds.
Bellows - seem light tight and supple.
Mechanics - Pops open, folds up easily.
Viewfinder - the magnifying lens is missing on the swiveling brilliant, viewfinder still works, but is not magnified. You can replace it if you like. It still has the cap to hold it on.

There is also a perfect working pop-up viewfinder for landscape photos.


Specs:
Shutter speeds from T, B and 1s to 1/250s.
Compur Shutter
Lens - Solinar lens f4.5 105mm

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.
