Voigtlander Vito B

Manufactured in the mid fifties, these compact 35mm viewfinder cameras from Voigtlander are each fitted with a 50mm f/3.5 Color-Skopar lens in a Prontor SVS shutter.

The earlier model may also be found fitted with a four-speed Pronto shutter, and the later cameras can also found with Color-Skopar 50mm f/2.8 lenses.

This later model has a bright-line finder.

Something to be aware of when checking a Vito, the shutter will not fire if there is no film in the camera to rotate the film sprocket. This often leads people to believe the shutter is jammed, when in fact there is no major fault present.
