    Sorry, I should've mentioned it is the Isolette's American cousin, the ANSCO Speedex Special. Same camera...

    Yes, they are the same. Nice cameras and pretty easy to work on.

    I'm a fan of Agfa/Ansco cameras.

    I recently found an Ansco Titan which I love.

    Nice Find!

    By now, surely your camera displays and collection have spilled out of home and into the coffee shop... :)

    Funny, I have a camera just like this one for as long as I can remember. It is in a very poor state though, unlike yours. Cool finding, even apart from the 99c story...
