Agfa Super Silette

Manufactured in 1955 this well-specified fixed-lens 35mm rangefinder camera is fitted with a Solinar 45mm f/3.5 lens in a Synchro-Compur 1 to 1/500 second light value shutter with self-timer.

The Solinar was a high-quality four-glass lens broadly similar in performance to a Zeiss Tessar or Schneider Xenar.

An almost identical camera to this would have been sold as an Ansco Super Memar in the States.
