Voigtlander Vitessa 105


The technical stuff:

Camera type: Compact Automatic with Scene modes

Lens Type: Voigtlander Vario Zoomar  38 - 105mm

Shutter Type: Automatic



I fell in love with this little gem the minute I set eyes on it. Now, I know it's not a real Voigtlander but none the less it has that distinguished look of quality to it. In addition to it's looks it also sports a Voigtlander Zoomar lens which should be superb. It has a useable range of options and that very useful 38-105 lens, I can't wait to try it.

The wait is over and the results are in. Should I keep you in suspense or cut to the chase. Before I say any more I will point out that I have no idea where the roll of film came from and when I took it out of the camera it was a supermarket "own brand" 400iso of unknown age. I tend to acquire a lot of out of date film through my dealings and use this for test rolls. Well, given the dubious origin of the film and the fact that I was shooting 400 on a blazing sunny day, the results are just amazing, so much so that I have reloaded with fresh branded Fuji film to take it out again. It's rare for me to get excited about a plastic camera but this one is special, I think it's safe to say that the legend of the Voigtlander lens is upheld. Incidentally, the images in the gallery are of one of the most beautiful privately owned gardens I have ever visited, a real treat. It is Sharcott Manor in Wiltshire and is only open 6 days a year on the first Wednesday of the month from April to September plus 2 Sundays.
