Week 118 - Agfa Isomat-Rapid

This is one of the "Agfa Rapid" format cameras that uses the "Rapid" cassette system, which is a spool free 35mm canister. The films are no longer made, but the cassettes can easily be re-loaded, which is what I have done this week.
Agfa, and various other manufacturers produced a whole range of these cameras, many very simple, some with a full range of adjustments, and others, like this one, somewhere in the middle. The Isomat-Rapid has an automatic exposure system based on a Selenium cell, it still seems to work, though how well will only become apparent when I process the film.
