Chronology of cameras Agfa 

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand

As I said it in the page of Photax IV, before the second world war (1936-1940), the use of moulded matter (bakelite, cégéite, etc…) allowed to the cameras manufacturers to free itself from the forms generally rectilinear, but hitherto impossible to circumvent, for the manufacture of cameras. Agfa large manufacturer of foldings cameras and box of all kinds did not escape the movement.
The moulded matter is called here “Trolite” and the photo camera Fortunately takes the name of… “Trolix” (that the manufacturers of bakelite cameras had more imagination. If not, that of Bakelix should collect to us!!!)

In this camera, all or almost is made of moulded matter. The parts making exception are there the metal handle, the few buttons of setting made of metal and the lenses of lenses and finders.
It is probably the thorough use to the extreme of the moulded matter which makes particularly difficult to find this camera of pre-war period in good condition. The least shock splits it or the tiny room in small glares, to say as much that the coast of a camera in good condition is rather good.
