Speed shooting with my new Agfa Optima Parat. This 60 year old half frame camera meters the light by a selenium cell (still working after 60 years!) and calculates the exposure. You just have to adjust the focus by estimating the distance and choosing the corresponding focus zone. 72 pictures are a lot. So I went out to the Externsteine and my beloved museum (Freilichtmuseum Detmold) to test the camera. All shots were appropriately exposed. And for most of them I choosed the focus distance well. On this day the light was not spectacular. So the resulting photographs are certainly not top shots. But they show that the camera takes pictures reliably and the operation is uncomplicated.
