Agilux Agifold III first test

Hi,

recently I posted about a found film which came with this camera.
This time I tested the camera and was very satisfied with results.

The Agilux Agifold III is a '50s 6x6 folding with uncoupled rangefinder and extinction meter (not working)... so it was a "top class" for that time.
It proved to be easy when used and gave nice images. I used it with Weston Master III meter to have an "all british" couple working....

Nice camera.

I like British made optics.

Everyone lauds the Germans and the Japanese but the British have had many great and outstanding lens makers, like Ross, Cooke/TTH, Dallmeyer, Wray, Barr & Stroud, and Kershaw.

Btw. In fact I recently got an M.P.P. Mark VIII 4"x5" camera (but lens is a Schneider) which is very well built....
