The AGFA Clack


Op shops are a great place for finding old cameras that people just throw out now and for $2 I found a 1950’s Agfa Clack. Online I brought an old Fomapan 120 BW film to try out the camera and these are the prints I received back from the developers that I scanned and adjusted.

I am told the name comes from the noise it makes when you shoot.

The Clack

This was the first exposure complete with someone’s finger prints. Its the old water tank that was used for steam engines at the Strathalbyn railway station SA

double-exposure

Whoops a double exposure! It’s so easy to forget to wind film on but I think it is rather artistic.
