For Katie who wrote me a testimonial, thank you so much for the amazingly kind and sweet words, they mean the world to me!

The Clack camera was manufactured by Agfa 1954-65. It is a simple, boxlike camera, with a single-element 95mm meniscus lens with built-in close-up lens and yellow filter. It takes 6×9 cm pictures on 120 film.

 

When I was researching this cute little camera I came across an article someone wrote about it, thought I would share....

 

The Agfa Clack is one of those cam­eras that are in dan­ger of being over­looked by the col­lec­tor fra­ter­ni­ty be­cause of their nor­mal­cy and ubiq­ui­ty. Though it's true that Clacks were never very ex­pen­sive nor very rare, and never found their way to pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­pher's equip­ment pools, they were house­hold names for many, and as such de­serve a place in our col­lec­tive pho­to­graph­i­cal mem­o­ries.
