The presented model
is a Standard - Type 208.
It used glass
plates in a 9x12 cm format. However, it was possible to use it with a
120 rollfilm back. It is equipped with an Automat shutter and an Agfa
Doppel Anastigmat lens of 1:4,5 f=13,5 cm. Other versions were
proposed with a 1:6.3 aperture lens and/or a Compur shutter
and in a 6.5 x 9 cm format (Type 204).
This camera exists
also in a “Deluxe” version. It has the same characteristics than the
(204 or 208)
but it has a brown leather covering and brow bellows.
The cameras of the
series have the famous Agfa
focussing system moving the lens via a lever at the 10 o'clock position
This system offered a much quicker focussing compared to other cameras
having a focussing gear with the tram tracks.
