The Selectaflex is a 35mm leaf-shutter SLR camera made by the German company Agfa. It offers manual exposure or shutter-priority AE, using the large selenum meter cell on the front of the top housing. The shutter, a special Prontor, has speeds 1 - 1/300 second, plus 'B'; it is a permanent part of the camera, not of the interchangeable lens.
The standard lens is the 50 mm f/2.8 Color-Solinar pictured here. A 35mm f/3.4 Color-Ambion and 90mm f/3.4 Color-Telinear were also available for the camera.
There are two styles, the name being printed more or less widely-spaced on the meter cell, as in the two pictures on the right. In both pictures, the camera is missing the Agfa decal in the impressed rhombus in the top housing.
