FS: Charity 'Auction' - Agfa Isolette w/ Rare Night Jgestar Lens!
Well, I bet you thought you'd never see another one of these before you left the planet! An Agfa Isolette with an honest to gosh 8.5 cm f/6.3 Jgestar lens, usually called the Night Jgestar or Speed Jgestar. Eat your hearts out, you Ernemann wannabes. Condition is nothing less than luscious. Would make a respectable shelf queen or load 'er up with some 120 film and you are good to shoot 6x6 negs (or 645 if you can find/make a mask). Features a full range of shutter speeds all the way from 1/25th up to a rocket-freezing 1/125th. Minimum f/stop is f/32 so you can also play Ansel if you have a tripod and a good eye. Lens is clear and fresh, but the best news of all is that every penny including the cost of shipping will be passed along to Special Olympics to support their basketball program for special kids. Or you can donate directly to Special O and just send along the receipt to me as proof.
The header says 'Auction' so here's the deal. We will leave the camera up for sale until 10PM Eastern US time on Monday April 19th. If you are interested in it just post a response with your 'bid'. Opening bid is $5 just to keep it interesting. Minimum advance is $1. Bids must be time stamped 10:00 PM or earlier. Good luck! Just post if any questions.
