Voigtlander Bessa R2C Review- What Is Old Is New Again – By Floyd K. Takeuchi

No one is going to confuse me with a hipster when I’m out and about with one of my older film cameras. Not at my age. That gives me some cover when I load up the camera bag for a photo outing. But no matter what your age, if you’re using a camera and lenses that are about as old as you are, if not older, one quickly comes to appreciate a modern camera body. Things like big, bright viewfinders. Easy loading of film. And yes, an accurate meter.

That’s what led me three years ago pick up a Voigtlander Besssa R2C, a curious short-run 35mm rangefinder body produced in the early 2000s.
