This camera was designed in Germany and produced from 1937 to 1940 by the Agfa Ansco Corp, Binghamton, NY USA. It uses B2 (120) roll film and weighed in at 14.4oz without film. You can also take color pictures with the B2 Plenachrome film or 120 film that is comparable. It has a single meniscus lens and a rotary shutter with a sliding adjustable aperture. The shutter speed is 1/30th of a second with a slide bar time setting that closed the shutter when the shutter lever was released. The focal range is 2m to infinity as were most box cameras of the time. The camera also has two viewfinders that let the operator choose portrait or landscape. The view finders use chromed polished steal not mirrors and they have held-up well over the years. Much of this information was obtained from or Matt Denton’s site.
