Agfa Autostar Pocket

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

Autostar seems to be a generic name to indicate the basic versions of the Agfa cameras. Thus, there is Autostar X-126, Autostar pocket with format 110 and probably Autostar 127.

Autostar pocket is thus one 110 non-Agfamatic.All is done there with simplest… and at least expensive (from where manufacture in India or in Brazil).

There are very few moving parts. The shutter release is not the sensor, but a simple chrome button. The lens is Optar. The advance of film is ensured by a button to make slide below the body.

This camera is not entitled to a metal dragonne, but to a simple cord. Autostar is even basic by its manufacture than the 1000.
