the two types of bellows - the top at one has the Agfa problem - shiny plastic which cracks to produce pin-holes in its corners

costing 14 18s 9d in 1958 that's equivalent to 260 in 2009 using RPI . However, compared to today's average earnings that's 659.

the last-of-the-line Prontor SVS shutter, introduced in 1954, is obvious due to the sideways placement of the flash connector
