Silette F is a 35mm film viewfinder camera made by Agfa and introduced in 1963. It belongs to the long lasting Silette series.

Silette-F is similar to Agfa Silette II but replacement of the cold-shoe by a built-in hinged flash-reflector with bulb AG-1 and no self-timer.[1] Agfa Silette Rapid F is the similar model for Rapid film cartridges.
