Week 47 - Bilora Radix


Week 47 - Bilora Radix, originally uploaded by pho-Tony.
This camera was made in Germany in the late 1940s, it uses the Agfa Rapid (or Karat) system, in which 35mm film is loaded into a spool free cassette, and advanced by direct driving of the sprockets into another cassette. The most common image size is 24mm square, as used in this camera, but there were also half frame (see week 33), and full 24mm x 36mm cameras.
I've loaded approximately half of a 36 exposure roll of Rollei Retro black and white film into an old Agfa Rapid cassette.
