Description

Make: Agfa Camerawerk

Model: Ventura 66 / Isolette I

Year of Manufacture: 1938-1955

The Speedex:

Econo Ventura 66. The economized siblings are built to a lower price point. Therefore, they lack a depth of field scale on the top cover. More importantly, they are fitted with the lesser quality lens and shutter combinations. Hence, their lower price.

Identified by their left handed film winder, the basic variants do not have a double exposure prevention system and to fulfill their roll as a cost leader, are fitted with a less expensive Agnar lens, mounted to either a three or four speed shutter.

The first Isolette was introduced in 1938. Many variants were to follow from this original design over a 20 year period.
