Agfa Isolette 2


Recently aquired, I thought I would try this lovely old camera out for the first time along with some cheap 120 ( chinese Shanghai ) film.
The film was OK considering the price, ideal for trying these old cameras out for the first time.
My old hand held meter is probably not the most acurate, but there's enough exposure latitude in B&W film to cope with that.
The highlights are a little blown in the church image, maybe a touch over exposed or the film showing its limitations, but enjoyable all the same.

P.S Film developed in D76 ,as per instructions enclosed with film

Re: Agfa Isolette 2


Thankyou Gents, always good to use a roll of film sometimes.
Yes Tom ,I have a few folding 120 cameras as well as 35mm, looking forward to using another roll soon.
Toby, I think its a 50s camera, apparently they made a few variations of this with differents lenses,there is actuall a small hair at the edge of the lens ( inside ) only a few mm long but this doesn't affect the images at all,but I took the photo of the Agfa on the sideboard with a digital camera emoticon
