Voigtlander Bessa RF

Traduction de Sylvain Halgand.

This folding camera is equipped with a rangefinder. The Focusing is done while turning the ring which surrounds the depth of field table, consequently the bellows being stretched. The winding of the shutter is done on the shutter itself, but the shutter release is unusually located under the flap. It will be thus on the left side if the camera is held horizontally.

A yellow filter, of origin, is assembled on hinge.
The shutter is very powerful. It is about Compur-Rapid, allowing the 1/400 of second and the time exposures B and T.
