The Agfa-Ansco PD16 Plenax camera was manufactured by the Agfa company from 1935 to approximately 1941. Designed as a low cost folding bed roll film camera. It is capable of capturing eight exposures of 2½ x 4¼ inch or 16 exposures of 2½ x 2⅛ on no. 616 film. A mask for the film plane is provided to be used to obtain the smaller 16 exposures. This camera features a swivelling brilliant finder, tripod sockets and two covered red windows. Three lens options are available including an Antar f/14, a Tripar F/11 or a Hypar F/6.3. The Antar f/14 is fitted with a simple leaf shutter providing time and instantaneous functions. There is a socket for cable release.

The aperture range is f/14 to f/32. It also has a yellow filter that can be swung into place when on the f/14 setting. The yellow filter can be used to emphasize cloud effects and for better colour rendition of landscapes and flowers.

The Agfa PD16 Clipper was a completely different collapsing design, but accepting the same film size.

All of the punctuation variations PD 16, PD-16, and PD16 may be encountered, as the company itself was not consistent.
