The Agimatic is a well-made and finished 35 mm camera. Exposures are made by slight pressure on a lever on the front of the camera, continuing pressure after exposure advances the film and re-sets the shutter. An interchangeable 85 mm lens was available. An updated model called the Agima was introduced around 1960.
