Voigtlander  Bessa

This Bessa model is the only one to have an automatic chain-based opening system. However, this system cannot perform focusing contrary to the later Inos II and Prominent 6x9. This camera uses 120 films allowing 6x9 or 4,5x6 frames thanks to a reducing mask.
Two lens/shutter combinations were proposed : Skopar/Compur, or Heliar/Embezet.
