The Agfa Cadet Flash box camera was manufactured by the Agfa company in Munich German in circa 1941. This specially made camera was designed to accommodate a detachable synchronized flash unit mounted on the top. The A8 Cadet Flash snap shot box camera was made only in the no. A-8 size, and therefore capable of capturing eight 1 5/8 x 2 1/2 inch exposures on No. A-8 Agfa roll film. It has a fixed focus high grade lens, a one-way shutter release providing instantaneous and bulb exposures, an easy loading metal cone, a hinged back and a direct view wire finder mounted on the side. The two brilliant finder found on the other cadet cameras were removed to accommodate the large flash unit.
