    Agfa Isolette Macro/Close-up

    Hi,
    Has anyone used an agfa isolette for close up shots? i have an isolette II and the focus ring goes from 0 to 1 metres but you can set it inbetween. has anyone sued an isolette like this and got decent results?

    I haven't done it, but it might be good to first see how close it will focus. Open the back and put a piece of frosted scotch tape across the film rail (ie where the film would be positioned). Then set the shutter to B and open fire the shutter and holding down the lever, see what image focuses on the tape when you get close to objects (I use a bare light bulb.)

    Why? Why? And why? again.

    A viewfinder camera isn't the preferred type for shooting when focus and framing are critical. Why punish yourself when there are better tools for the job?
