Accy, it would be a crime to not use that. Even if it needs a few bob spent on a refurb you really ought to be taking pictures with it.Below are pics of my dad's old camera. It's an Agfa Billy,made in Germany(West Germany, as it was then,i presume). He bought it in Hong Kong around 1952/3,while doing National Service over there. All our family photos were taken by/on this camera. I think it was last used around 1979/80. So it had a lifespan of around 28 years. I wonder if it'd still work?
Those were the days,when you took around 30 photos on holiday,then had to wait till you got back home to take them to Timothy Whites,then wait a fortnight before you could collect them.

In 1989 (I think) the pound was strong against the dollar, and I saw an advert from a tool shop in Grand Forks, North Dakota. They said they would crate up the Powermatic and ship it to the East coast of the US for very little money. A shipping agent in Ipswich did the rest. It turned up in Battersea about five weeks later. It's been turning perfectly good pieces of timber into sawdust ever since.Massive instant table saw envy
It might still work Joe. I suppose you can still buy the old films it'd take,though getting any photos developed might be a problem.Accy, it would be a crime to not use that. Even if it needs a few bob spent on a refurb you really ought to be taking pictures with it.
As someone who still uses a film camera from time to time, no problem at all. An online check will give you loads of options for both.It might still work Joe. I suppose you can still buy the old films it'd take,though getting any photos developed might be a problem.
Is it the same as this one?
