Optima 200 Sensor

The Optima 200 Sensor is a 35mm film viewfinder camera made by Agfa and introduced in 1969. The camera is the first one in the range of long lasting Agfa Optima Sensor series. Optima 200 was a big success of Agfa.

The exposure meter is a Selenium cell sensor. The lens is Agfa Color-Apotar 42mm f/2.8 in Paratic shutter with speeds 1/30-1/200.

In 1973 a slightly different version of the camera was introduced. It has plastic top housing, hot-shoe and different film speed setting. [1]
