Agimatic at St. Louis Zoo

Perfect weather, Sunday, October 14, 2007.
I put a roll of ASA 200 generic grocery-store branded print film, just short of last shelf date, into the Agimatic.
This camera came to me recently from a good English friend in Lancashire. It is the only Agimatic that I know of in America.
Camera was made completely in England in 1956.
Small body, stainless steel.
Non-coupled rangefinder.
Non-coupled extinction meter, with calculator on top.
Same front lever first advances film on a full stroke, then releases shutter on a second short stroke.
Lens is interchangeable, easily removable. Only the 4 element f: 2.8 / 45 mm seems to be available, the 85 mm lens apparently quite rare.
At the St. Louis Zoo today, with my first use of this camera, it handled much better than anticipated, and shutter release was smooth and vibration free.
