The Pioneer camera was manufactured by the Agfa Company from 1940 to 1952. Designed as a simple snap-shot camera made of a durable plastic body with metal covers. The camera featured a built-in direct view finder, synchronized flash, and turret lens mounting of a high-quality lens plus a bulb and instantaneous rotary shutter. It was made in two sizes, a PB20 for capturing eight exposures 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch on no. 620 or PB20 roll film or a PD16 for capturing eight exposures 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 inch on no. 616 or PD16. This camera was priced at $2.95 for the PB20 and $3.45 for the PD16. The camera has no double exposure protection and would be a box camera if not for the flash. Most of the information was obtained from the site.
