History

The Speedex was made by the merged Agfa/Ansco company in Binghamton, NY. in 1940. It uses 120 film and takes 6x6 photos.
The Speedex B2 has 85mm f/4.5 Agfa Anastigmat lens. The shutter has speeds from 1/2 to 1/250 shutter speeds plus B and T settings. There is no interlock which prevents double exposures. The bellows were not made of leather, so often pinholes have developed in them.

The Agfa PB 20 Readyset is a series of 6x9 folding cameras for type PB20 roll film (equivalent to Kodak's designation 620) produced in the 1930s by Agfa Ansco Corp in Binghamton, NY, USA.
