    I just won two bids on two 6x9 cameras, an AGFA Billy Record C (I believe with the Gauthier shutter) and a Kodak Six 20. Can't wait to get them and do the cleaning, revamping... :mrgreen:

    The AGFA takes softer pictures, I understand, it's got a weird lens on, but I've seen some nice shots on the web, besides it was very cheap.

    Oh well... Tax refund money. :mrgreen:

    What's weird about the lens?

    Good buys, if that's what you want. :thumbsup:

    It's called Jgestar or Jgetar. The aperture is either 6.3 or 8.8. Go figure!...

    Well... Let me fetch some generic photos from Google...

    This is the AGFA Billy Record, although the one I got has the Art Deco nickel sides. And I believe it's another shutter altogether, a Gauthier.

    And that's the Six 20, apparently made in the UK.
    I'll deliver better pics when they arrive.
