John and I roaming the grounds at Amherst College in January. The Voigtlander Virtus is another example of the many amazing Voigtlander cameras from the golden age of folding cameras, 1930's-50's. This one is fitted with Compur shutter and excellent Skopar 75mm f3.5 lens. I love the vertical orientation of this piece, so cool looking and great to use. One of the marvelous features of these early Voigtlanders is they had an external knob that allowed you to set the distance even before opening the camera so you could preset the distance and then only have to worry about aperture and shutter speed as you popped the latch. http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Voigtl%C3%A4nder_VirtusTaken by clickiemcpete with a Voigtlander Virtus 1930's loaded with Kodak Vericolor II VPL, expired, C-41 as E-6 film in Amherst, MA, United States. This photo can also be found in the album Voigtlander Virtus: Chasing Amherst Shadows.
