Voigtlander Vitessa (Version 5) - Great Cond
1950s wonderful beautiful cameras. Another one with a lot of write-ups. What makes this stand out is not just the folding bellow doors. It is the plunger that sticks out like a chimney you press down on it to advance the film!
The Voigtlander Vitessa many variations my one is version 5 because of the Synchro-Compur leaf shutter with speeds up to 1/500. This version is the 2nd most sought after. The other model to look out for is the Voigtlander Vitessa N.
I did not mention the L or T models because those had built-in light meters and unfortunately many don't work anymore and if working well they are damn pricey!
