Agfa Karat 3.5
The Karat is a strut folding camera made by Agfa from the mid-1930s until the mid-1950s. It came with a new film loading concept for 35mm film. The camera has to be loaded with a cartridge in which the film is provided and an empty cartridge of the same type.
The film advance mechanism of the camera transfers the film step by step out of the one into the other cartridge. The piece of film lying inside the camera between the cartridges will always be fixed perfectly in the focal plane.
Karat cartridges are a light-tight version of a an older cartridge type of Agfa. 27 years later the Karat cartridges were revived as Agfa's Rapid film system.
