Thanks for creating an account here on! We appreciate your willingness to help us create the most comprehensive camera and photography encyclopedia on the web. is a big website, so we'd like to offer a few quick pointers to help get you started.

First off, please let us know you're real - there are lots of spambots out there who like to create accounts and post spam. All you need to do is let us know you're a real human who's interested in cameras by clicking the "Edit" tab above and writing a short "hello, I'm a camera geek not a spambot!" message to us.

You also have a profile page that you can edit to tell us more about yourself if you'd like. It's purely optional but it's always nice to get to know another camera lover.

This website uses software called Mediawiki that's also used by WikiPedia. If you already know how to use and edit WikiPedia, you'll feel right at home here.

Old guy camera user. getting back into 35mm cameras and developing some film to scan.

I'm editing and writing pages on the Afga Rapid Film cameras.

I saw a Agfa Rapid Iso-Matic in an article/picture a few months ago (may 2018) and really liked the boxy simplistic style of the camera. After checking ebay and etsy for cameras and prices I bought one to play with. Since then I've bought a few more, different specific models, so I have sort of a collection now. I tend to buy project cameras that I think I can fix. I take them apart and try and figure out what is broken and see if I can fix them.

I've bought a bunch of the Rapid film cassesttes and SL film cassettes (East German version of the Rapid system), and some DCS cassettes. I read an online article about the DCS cassettes being a option for loading film for the Rapid type cameras. I also picked up a Smena SL camera, since they use the SL film cassettes, and its another boxy simplistic camera. I'll be writing more about the cameras I've picked up and taken apart, to help others who get interested in these cameras, to fix or use them in the future.
