Beirette VSN... Family History

The camera of my mother. She used this when she was an unmarried youngster.

Since childhood I have the fortune to have old cameras in my house. My parents has always taken great care of their stuff. This is how I found a Diana, a Polaroid, a Zenit XP, among others … but the one that caught my attention was a little friend called Beirette VSN. The Beirette that was in my house was when my mom was in her maiden days. Like all cameras, I asked to see it.

It had a little dirty lens, so I cleaned it carefully. I reviewed the options before the camera. A 45mm f2.8 lens was pretty good! It has different speeds and an option “B”. It also has to measure the distance from the goal … In short, a fairly complete camera for its small size. But without a photometer.

It is best to have the ability to use a hotshoe flash, which allowed me to try to Colorsplash Flash!
