Subject: [Leica] Agfa Clack
From: Martin Howard <>

Last weekend, I bought two "new" cameras: one was a extremely well-
used, but perfectly functioning Leica M1 that had been converted to an
M2 (on topic) and the other was an Agfa Clack.  The M2 I know how to
use.  Not so for the Clack... ;-)

I've searched the web for pages or mailing lists, but to no avail. My
main questions are:

  What is the shutter speed (it only has one setting, and B)?
  What are the apertures (only got two)?
  How much should you wind on the films between shots?

I also got some film in the deal: Plus-X.  One expired in Oct 1964, the
other in Jul 1965. Unopened in their boxes.  Somehow feels right to
stick it in my 1965 M3 with a DR Summicron and snap away ;-)
