First impressions of my Agfa Isoly.
Well what can you get for a quid? not a lot is the answer. When I saw this gem of German engineering I expected it to be like all other German camera's well made and strong, wow how wrong can a man be. The Isoly is more robust than some but it was made to a price and that price was as close to zero as one can get. I have a couple of agfa's ad they are robustly made and designed to be as good as possible, the lump of sixties plastic sitting on my radiator as I type is not in that category. I bought it because it takes 120 film and I have a roll that I want to use up so I am not expecting much it wont even be full size as it takes 16 frames at 4x4 rather than 12 6x6 format. I must saymy first impressions are this camera is cheap but sometimes simple things please simple minds so as I get over my first impressions (its only been here fifteen minutes) I may yet come to enjoy this wonder of German thrift, but if the plastic ever ready case is anything to go by I am dubious. Still here are a couple of photos taken with my lumix tz8.
