Agat 18


Agat 18 is the smallest camera in my collection. It is so compact that can fit into the palm, doesn’t take too much space in the pocket, that is why you can always be ready for the unexpected and interesting things with this camera.

Agat 18 is a half-format camera, so as the film has 72 frames. It is quite efficient, isn’t that so?

The camera is made of plastic, that is why it’s light. For film loading, it opens out into two parts. You can fit the exposition as by the diaphragm settings and exposure, as by the weather peculiarities. From my point of view it is quite simple to do.

Agat cameras was produced in the fomer USSR by the BelOMO enterprise in Minsk.

    I see that your images has shadows along the left and right edges. I also got these on my first roll, but got rid of them by painting the inside of the camera matte black. The interiors are a bit too shiny, so you get internal reflections. It is a beautiful little camera, I believe it is the lightest half frame camera ever made, and the Industar lens is great. It looks and feels like a toy camera, but it really is more than that.
