I have a camera similar to this which my father bought in 1945, second hand, from a soldier who had just returned from Germany. It was used regularly for many years.

Re: Agfa Billy


What a beauty, and for £3 !, I assume its in working order with bellows intact?, I have an assortment myself including a Franka Rolfix with a 6x6 mask, and 2 Ensigns, I have used the Ensign in the past and was happy with the results.
A roll of 120 doesn't go far, so makes you concentrate emoticon looking at this camera and the one you posted previously is giving me the urge to fish out my remaining roll of film.

Looks like £3 very well spent, less than a pint of beer and a lot nicer to look at. Makes a beautiful photo Ian.
