The Agfa Box 50 is a durable, simple camera for beginners. It made 6×9 cm exposures on 120 film. The inner part has to be taken out of the camera to load the film. The Synchro version allows the Agfa Clibo bulb flash to be used. From about 1960, the Synchro Box was also made under licence by New India Industries in Vadodara (also known by its anglicised name, Baroda), Gujarat, India.[1]
