The BeLOMO Agat 18K


After a message from Alexander, I took from a closet my reeeeeeally old tiny/plastic camera – BeLOMO Agat 18K. It’s for standard film (35mm) but it takes twice more photos on it (twice smaller, You know).

I got it from a friend something like 23 years ago, or so. I thought it was broken but now I’m not so sure. Tomorrow I will try to load the machine with a film and we will see.

I noticed people here can make really great photos with the Agat (like those ones made by Alexander for instance) so I will try too. :)

It’s a pity there is no video about loading the camera with film, on YouTube, however still there is now video about it, I found pretty interesting.
So if You’d be interested in this device too, here is the video:

    Agate gave me in 1986. There are no batteries, and it was very good. In the USSR was not regular batteries get. In the magazine "Yunyy_tehnik" was an instruction how to make the batteries at home.
