As well as a teeny little, my brother gave me an Agfamatic 2000.
It’s a great example of ’70s futuristic design. Did they have cameras in Space 1999 ( http://www.space1999.org )? If they did, they would have looked like this.
I think the word ‘sensor’ writ on the top just means that if you push the big red button, it senses that it has been pushed. There’s certainly nothing complicated relating to sensing light going on in there.
The camera closes up, covering the lens. It is opened using a switch on the bottom. Squishing the camera shut again winds the film on. It springs back open unless you lock it shut.
It’s a really nice camera to use.
It feels solid, it is friendly, the winding mechanism makes a satisfying noise, and the slinky metal wristband is a fine thing.
Unfortunately, the pictures that come out of it ain’t no good.
