Vintage Camera: Agfa Pioneer

This week's vintage find is again from Ebay and cost me $5. Made from 1947-1953, the Agfa (and sometimes Ansco) Pioneer was designed by famed industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss of Bell Telephone fame. The camera features a film plane that is curved and the lens is designed to match the curvature of the film plane, a needle-eye small viewfinder, and a red shutter release button. It had me at the red button.
