vintage agfa clack

I finally found a vintage film camera of my very own!  It’s not expensive or rare, and I’ll admit, it’s not as impressive a score as the photographer’s beier beirette, but it’s my first vintage film camera and it already has a special place in my heart!

The Agfa Clack was manufactured in Germany between 1954 and 1965 and it’s really nothing fancy, just a medium format box camera that shoots on 120mm film. It has a plastic body, a plastic lens, and only two aperture settings and shutter speeds.

But it’s cool, and everything I think a lomo camera should be!  Now that I have the real deal, my Diana F+ is dead to me ;-)

    Hi Cheryl,

    Perhaps, but having paid $70+ for the Diana, which is completely flimsy (though pretty) next to the Clack, I see the Diana in a new light. I’ve always felt a bit silly carrying it.

    Oh Sage what a beauty! Now my interest has piqued since showing us all these vintage cameras. I am going to have to keep an eye out at our thrift stores now. You never know what I might find!
