After a long time of searching I got the right (second) camera for me. It’s the Agfa Optima sensor electronic, an amazing part of design of the 70’s. This robust view-finder camera is perfect on the go cause it’s small and easy to use.
Name: Optima sensor eletronic
Flash Types: no flash (but hotshoe)
Exposure: 1/30 – 15 s
ISO Speeds: 25-500
Cable Release: yes
Tripod Screw Mount: yes
I got in the analogue life with a Diana F+. After falling in love with her, I wanted a second camera which is my ready to shoot camera.
The Agfa Optima sensor electronic is a 35mm compact view-finder camera with manual focus. On the top of the lens you can adjust the focus by three symbols (mountains, two people and one people) and on the rear side in Meters and Feet. But it’s not the big problem if you don’t get the right distance it has a wide depth of field.
On the front of the camera you can set up the film speed and there is the built in light meter. It got a fast lens and if there is a flash inserted you can manually choose the aperture. I love the red release button on the lever which is also used for rewinding. The body is made out of metal with a plastic coating. And if you open the back unintended, you don’t destroy the whole film cause it is covered in a sealed chamber. (I’m very happy of this feature.)
If you need further information there is a great German site of the whole Agfa Optima series (http://www.edition-oldenburg.de/agfa_optima.html).
