Agfa Optima 200

Newest addition to the camera collection. An Agfa Optima 200 “sensor”. Sadly enough all the print on the body has faded with the years. This full-automatic camera (the only settings are ASA and flash distance) featured a shutter sensor (the orange circle) to reduce camera movement. A built in light sensor tells you whether there is enough light or not thanks to a red or green circle in the viewfinder. At first glance it’s in good working condition, I’ve loaded a film and will share the results soon.

    Hi I just bought this camera from a little op shop in Italy. How did you go taking photos with it and do you have any tips for getting good results?
    Thanks!

    Hi!
    Me too, I’ve got this camera, but the problem is that I cannot see the light that indicates whether there is enough light or not… Does this mean that my camera doesn’t work?
