Super Isolette on the snow.

Hi all,

Tsaritsyno and Kolomenskoe parks, only 2 hours of real daylight to take pictures, between 11:00am-1:00pm.

Good work with the snow! Your Isolette does a fine job. Is that the model with an uncoupled rangefinder? Isolettes seem to match up with the Ansco Speedex line in the USA; I used to have an Ansco Speedex Special with an uncoupled rangefinder. I think it still had a 3 element Apotar lens (rather than Solinar) which was quite good. Thanks for posting the photos.

Thank you!
It's coupled, the equivalent for USA market would be Ansco Super Speedex, Agfa made the cameras just different brands for different markets and yes Apotar is a very fine lens as well.

Good use of a roll! I like most the first one, with the reflection in water (or is it ice?). I cannot imagine using a folder in the snow but it seems that you have mastered it.

I also have a Super-Isolette, which is a favorite camera. The Solinar lens is one of the best Tessar-type that I have used. Your lens also shines in the sharpness of rendering those dark twigs and branches against the snow.

Thank you, Julio. I remember some pictures from your Super Isolette, very nice tones.
Still was running water, temps are only -3 -5 so currents are mostly there. I liked the view for that purpose its was very black and reflecting.
So far the Super Isolette demonstrated a very good handling for frozen temps, levels are well situated and easy to move with gloves.

Thank you, James. I meant only two hours in which I can take photos with my iso 100 with old cameras with f6.3 max aperture.
Snow storm is still ongoing after one day, let's see the park how it looks like. Welta Weltur 6x6 and KW Patent Etui 9x12 loaded!

Great work with the Agfa, Alex. They are some of my favorite cameras. You might want to switch up to using some 400 speed film on those days with minimal sun.
