The Agiflash 44 was made in Croydon, England by the Agilux company from 1959-64. It succeeded the Bakelite Agiflash, and was initially made of black plastic with alloy pressings. It had a built-in flash bulb holder powered by a 22.5v battery in the base with a small flip-up cover. Opening this a small separate reflector was held in place by the tension of the cover spring. Later models had a dark grey plastic body with the top pressing replaced by a light grey plastic moulding with a larger flash reflector.

Images were 4x4cm on 127 film, with a lever advance. A small lever above the lens selects between two apertures, labelled "Colour" and "B-W".

The later plastic versions of this camera were also sold rebadged as Ilford Imp. There are also examples labelled in French.
