I have an old Afga Bill Zero camera and I am trying to understand a little histry and if it one of the older units. I do know this model was made in the 30s.
 
 
INFORMATION;
 
Has Agfa ANASTIGMAT JGESTAR Lens F5.6/7.5cm
 
 
Has place for shutter release cable (do not have)
 
 
Has shutter release delay timer (set and run to get in photo)which is about 13 seconds.
 
 
Shutter spped selected via dial (not rim) and has T, B, 25,50,100 listed on the dial
 
 
Face of shutter speed dial says:
 
PRONTO D.R.P. DRGM
 
 
F-Stop is set with small lever on bottom of lens/shutter assembly
 
 
Focus is set in METERS via manual ring around lens with handle on the ring.
 
 
Serial Number (?) inside back cover is : A 0169
 
 
 
Found in father-in-laws house after his passing last year. WWII vet in Germany. Started in France and ended up in Munich via Belgium at the end of the war and then was returned to US summer 1945.
 
 
Maybe "librated" it along the way but don't know. Did not ask him while he was alive and he never talked about it in the 30 + years I knew him. It was stuck out in the garage unders some old papers for decades. Just trying to get some information so I might be able to put a "story" together.
 
 
Took me a few days to learn to open it and study the markings + the operation.
 
 
ANY INFORMATION I CAN OBTAIN WOULD BE WONDERFUL
 
 
HAVE PHOTO I COULD SEND IF DESIRED.

:Mickey, see the article about this model at ''[[Agfa Billy Zero]]''. The unit you have sounds interesting as it has a different lens and shutter from the other Billy Zeros which have been described on the internet. Pictures would be helpful, especially a macro of the front of the lens. Images added to the ''[http://www.flickr.com/groups/camerapedia/ Camerapedia Flickr Pool]'' could be used in articles on this website. "0169" sounds like a really low serial number but I'm not familiar with Agfa's numbering schemes. Is it in full working order? [[User:SuperCCD|SuperCCD]] 05:14, 17 August 2009 (EDT)

Hello,
I have a scan of an advertisement for the Baby Oso. I wanted to send you a private e-mail but was unable to do so, because it seems that you did not allow other members to send you e-mails through Camerapedia. You may want to activate this function, or send me an e-mail by going to my user page and clicking on the "E-mail this user" button that will appear in the left toolbar.
