### Usage Tips
1. **Loading Film**: Make sure to load the 120 film correctly by aligning the arrows on the film with the markers in the camera to ensure proper advancement.
2. **Fixed Focus**: Understand the limitations of the fixed-focus lens. It typically provides sharp images from a certain distance (usually around 3 meters to infinity). Subjects too close may appear out of focus.
3. **Lighting Conditions**: Given the fixed aperture and shutter speed, the camera works best in bright daylight. For low-light conditions, using the bulb mode on a tripod or using a flash is recommended.
4. **Composition**: Use the viewfinder to compose your shots carefully. Remember, the viewfinder gives an approximate view, so leave some room around the edges to ensure your subject is well-framed.
5. **Bulb Mode**: For long exposures, especially in low light, use the bulb mode (B) with a steady hand or a tripod to avoid camera shake.

The Agfa Click III is cherished by collectors and vintage camera enthusiasts for its straightforward operation and the nostalgic quality of its images. It provides a great way to experience medium format photography with minimal complexity.
