5 Frames With a Voigtländer Vitomatic I – Not Bought “for Display” – By Alex Vye

The Voigtländer Vitomatic I is a 35mm viewfinder camera that was produced between 1957 and 1960. The lens is a 50mm Colors-Skopar 1:2.8. F-stops are 2.8 to 22. Shutter  is a Prontor SLK-V with  bulb, 1, 1/2nd, 1/4th, 1/8th, 1/15th, 1/350th, 1/60th, 1/125th, 1/250th and 1/300th sec. It has a selenium meter – it gives you a reading, you have to manually set the f-stop and shutter yourself.

The Vitomatic I is all metal and glass, and quite heavy. It has a wonderfully bright viewfinder window.
