Voigtlander Vitoret


The technical stuff:

Type: Compact Viewfinder

Lens: Voigtlander Lanthar 50mm f2.8

Shutter: Prontor 3 speed 30,60,125



This is an example of a later model Voigtlander, made in collaboration with Zeiss Ikon. The Ikon Colora is basically the same camera without the lightmeter.

In superb condition I acquired this from ebay for a small sum. However, I don't actually like it very much. It seems rather awkward to handle with the shutter mounted on the front with a vertical action. Having said, it has produced some very good results, I love the horse portrait, and is very simple to use with only 3 speeds. The Lanthar lens surprised me with it's sharpness and definition but then my only reference is the Skopar on my Vitomatic which is in poor condition. All in all a good performer I just don't like that front mounted shutter.
