Agfa Isolette vintage analog camera, made in Germany - $85 (Ypsilanti)

12345678
The Agfa Isolette (Jsolette) [1] is a horizontal-folding medium format camera made by Agfa Kamerawerk AG, Munich, Germany.

This folding camera first came on the market as the Isorette (Jsorette) but the name changed to Isolette (Jsolette) quite soon. From late 1937 the name writing form of I (like J) changed again to Isolette. This means that very early 1936/37 models have a Jsolette writing on the front plate leatherette of the camera. Isolette production lasted till 1942.
Good condition, sold as-is.

This model was called in Germany during the WWII times the "Soldatenkamera" (Soldiers' Camera) also. One of the very distinctive feature is the top-plate which is made of a plastic called "Trolitan". There were many different lens/shutter combinations.

There are two distinct models of the first Isolette (Jsorette/Jsolette) series:

The early model, produced before and during WW2
The late model, produced post WW2
All Isolette series produced between 1936/37-1950.
