Agfa Agfamatic 2000 Pocket (1973)

The Agfamatic 2000 Pocket is a deluxe version of the 1000 pocket. It is one of the earliest 110 cameras on the market, other than from Kodak.  The film is advanced Minox-style by pushing the end of the camera in and out and like the Minox the lens and viewfinder are protected when the camera is closed. 

The camera is mainly made of plastic but the metal components and shell in brushed aluminium give it a more substantial feel.

The shutter and speed switch is on the top panel and a slide-lock holds the body closed when not in use.
