I looked back at my archive and found that I’ve only posted a couple of my Pre-1940’s Camera Unboxings. Well, the Agfa 645 (a.k.a. the Billy Clack No. 51) from circa 1934 is making it’s first major appearance for the Frugal Film Project Tri-X 400 year end finale. So you first must experience the ‘Grand Unboxing’.
I’ve removed identification to protect privacy. But I did want you to know that this gem came from Slovakia……
And it was very well packed:
This one happened to come with a nice case:
So let’s take a look at what’s inside………
And taking a look inside. We see that it is a Portrait-style 645 camera design:
And the Final Camera loaded and ready to go! By the way, this IS a 120 film camera and shoots 16 images.
So you will be seeing posting for Frugal Film OCt-Nov_Dec 2020 from this camera. And good ‘extra’ prints will also be posted. If you would like more details about the Billy Clack No. 51, like where the name come from, visit the link at Art Deco Cameras.
