Fex Indo 126 LED

Photo by HG , formerly working at Indo Fex .

No, I do not have that Indo LED 126 in my collection!

Moreover , excluding some rare prototypes, it was never mass produced . It belongs to a former from Indo- Fex, who therefore was well placed to get one.

If I present the article from Phot 'Argus November 1978, It is becauseI was surprised to see that the prototype (below ) does not look like the one shown in the book of Gilles Moreau or the specimen presented here . Presumably the photo of the article presents a "normal"  Indo 126 with some makeup .

The camera has a shutter electronically controlled by a CdS cell. The name comes from the illumination of a red LED if speed is estimated too slowly and a green LED when exposure is found correct. As indicated by the owner of the device , the cameras keys are square and green because Agfa had filed round keys.

In the article, it is also interesting to see the fame of the brand, so little time before its death ( Phot 'Argus March 1979).
