Agfa Jsolette/Isolette V

Click here for complete Site Map

This is an Agfa Jsolette V dating from between 1949 and 1952. Its a 120 rollfilm folding camera which takes 12 pictures 6cm x 6cm in size. The Jsolette V is a bit of an oddity. Whilst this camera appears to be for the UK market - all the period information we have indicates that Agfa were selling an Isolette V here at this time. Having said this, we've not seen a genuine Isolette V yet - so maybe they were all marked Jsolette. Either way this camera was replaced by the
Isolette I which was introduced around 1952.

The Jsolette V is the bottom of the Jsolette/Isolette range and is distinguished by not having a top plate mounted shutter release. This one also has the lowly Agnar lens and Vario shutter and is currently untested.

An Isolette V of this configuration would have cost in late 1951, (pounds, shillings and pence) 18 9s 1d. With the better Pronto shutter this would have risen to 21 6s 5d. This equates to 330 and 381 at Year 2000 prices, but real value is more like 10-15 for either.
