The agfa Clack was my first medium format camera. I think I bought the camera somewhere in 2008. I wanted to have a go at analogue photography and I wanted a medium format camera. Just to have negatives that are bigger than 35mm. I like the camera. Simple cheap and surprisingly sharp for a camera like this. Of course it is not sharp like a Hasselblad or the sorts but for a couple of euros you get to have nice big negatives. Big enough to contact print and have a nice little photo. Funny how big negatives can yield nice little photos.
It is a simple little camera. Shutterspeed around 1/30th second or bulb. A simple one element lens. The camera is made out of plastic with some metal. The negatives are 6x9. So you get 8 pictures on one 120 rollfilm. On the metal thingies on top of the camera (on the left side of the photo) you can attach a Clibo flashlight so you can take photo's in low level light situations.
The good thing about this camera is that it has a bulb setting. Put it on a tripod and you can have longer exposures if necessary. Also this camera is really easy to turn into a pinhole camera. It is really easy to remove the lens and replace it for a pinhole. The shuttermechanism can than still be used for exposure.
The Clack has 3 settings for focus. 1-3 meters and 3 meters and beyond. The last focus setting has a cloudy and a sunny setting. The close up focus setting has a little lens that goes between the normal lens and the film. The cloudy and Sunny setting have different apperture holes in them. In some cases there is a yellow filter in the aperture for the Sunny setting. But not all Clacks are this luxery.
The below photo is one of the first I made with this delightfull little camera:
