A while ago, I picked up a little Voigtlander Vito B in an antique shop in Lichfield. I wasn’t really looking for another camera, but that’s so often the way when you find a gem.
And a real gem it is.
Small and solid, quality engineering. Fully manual and zone focus – it really makes you slow down and think . It has the 50mm/f3.5 SVS Prontor lens and although it’s over sixty years old, when you get it right, it makes the loveliest pictures. And it has the added bonus that a 35mm film canister lid fits exactly as a lens cover!
I struggle a bit with the little viewfinder as I wear spectacles, but have fitted a Voigtlander Kontur viewfinder which is fantastic. These pictures are from a roll of Agfa Vista 200 that I shot in an afternoon around the little village where we live (mostly of the old church.)
Hope you enjoy them!
