1950’s Voigtlander 35mm Vito B, CLA'd, Freshly Serviced!
Cleaned, Lubricated & Adjusted. Ready for immediate use
In this listing we have a delightful Voigtlander Vito B. It’s an attractive camera because of its small size, the lovely proportions and the distinctive 1950s styling. It was produced by Voigtlander in Germany between 1954 -1956. It’s a camera many collectors enjoy because of its excellent build quality, its delightful handling and its extremely quite shutter.
It uses normal 35mm film and is fitted with a fine 3.5/50mm Color-Skopar lens. (A coated. four element lens, similar in design and performance to the Zeiss Tessar.) Load this camera your favorite film and you’ll have a nice little eye catcher that’s guaranteed to give you a lot of fun.
The camera has a nice technical detail in that focusing is achieved by moving the entire lens assembly back and forth. This provides better lens performance (especially up close) than the more common “front cell focus” in which only the front element is turned in or out.
This camera is in excellent condition. Additionally, it’s been carefully Cleaned, Lubricated and Adjusted. All the speeds (B, 1 sec - 1/300th) fire smoothly and all shutter speeds are appropriate. It also has a flash connector that works with a normal electronic flash. The flash will fire correctly at any desired shutter speed.
(Which is of course convenient for flash fill)
The viewfinder is clear and bright. The lens is clean and clear and looks virtually new. There are no scratches or cleaning marks and it’s capable of producing lovely photos with modern color and b&w films.
It comes complete with a used brown leather case.
All in all, a very enjoyable little vintage camera.
