Agfa Isoly

All the simple cameras in this series use 120 roll film to obtain sixteen 4 x 4 shots. Easily recognizable with their large clear view finder, they also have a protection against double exposure. A tiny hole in the hood shows a red dot to indicate if photo has already been taken.

There is a three position switch opposite the shutter release on the lens mount. It provides the two apertures (F11 and F16) with focus from 4 metres to infinity, and a third aperture (F11) with an extra lens for focus from 2 - 4 metres. The camera is a very early example of a "hot shoe", with no alternative flash synchronization socket.
