- Not where I thought I'd end up
What can anyone tell me about an Agfa Record III which I picked up for $50. It appears to be in very fine shape - no nicks, scratches, wear marks, etc. I can see no scratches in the glass. It has a f4.5 105mm Apotar lens K20814. The shutter is a Prontor-V. I cannot find a serial number on the body anywhere. The bellows is apparently still flexible with no cracks (that I can see anyway). When I first got it the rangefinder, lens, and shutter were very tight and wouldn't work half the time. A LOT of exercising and it looks as if everything is moving smoothly again. I haven't been able to find anyone to do a CLA on it (locally anyway) but don't have any knowledge on what to do myself. Is there any information on how to do this or should I send it away to have it done. I'd really like to use the 6x9 format if this is a good camera. I haven't tried running any film through it yet. Any help, please???
