The camera was advertised by Agfa as first 35mm camera with coupled meter. The match-needle readout is on top plate. The body is a mixture between original Silette type 1 (1953) and type 3 (1958) with rapid winding lever on the top plate. Lens is Color-Solinar and the shutter is Prontor-SLK. [1]

The Selenium cell coupled exposure meter is semi-automatic; Adjust the settings for aperture or speed on the lens then transfer them directly to the meter and you could identify the correct exposure.
