Agfa Sillete (~1955)
Esta fotografia é do exemplar que possuo.


Silette is a name used by the German maker Agfa from 1953 to 1974 to designate successive generations of 35mm fixed-lens viewfinder cameras. The corresponding rangefinder models were called Super Silette. There was also an interchangeable lens rangefinder model called the Ambi Silette, which is discussed elsewhere. The first models were sold in the USA under the nameAnsco Memar and Super Memar, and some of later ones were sold under the name Agfa Solina.

Agfa Silette (original) is the first of the long lasting Silette series 35mm film viewfinder cameras made by Agfa and introduced in 1953.
