My cameras: Voigtländer Vitoret

The Vitoret was an entry level camera based on the Vito line. This was the most basic of a large family, manufactured by Voigtländer, at Braunschweig, in the former West Germany, during the 1960's.

It is a compact simple viewfinder type.

It is equiped with a Color-Lanthar 2.8/50 lens (2.8, 4, 8, 11, 16 and 22) and 3 speed shutter (1/30, 1/60, 1/125 plus B), with flash sync.

The film advance is made by a flushed lever that also cocks the winder.
The best feature is the very big and bright viewfinder, provided with bright framing lines.
The rewind release is located on the top plate, where you would expect to find the shutter release. The rewind is made using the knurled knob on the left of the top plate.

The shutter release is located on the front right, by the lens barrel, a remote cable can be attached to the bottom of it.

It has a film counter on the bottom plate, manual reset.
