Voigtlander Bessamatic – First Thoughts

A couple months back a work colleague was cleaning out their home and came across this camera. Knowing that I have an interest in old cameras they agreed to let me borrow it for a bit. This SLR camera has a selenium meter that still works and the focus and aperture rings are nice and smooth. Weighing in at just over 2lbs, it’s a hefty beast but feels solid. Below are a couple shots from the test roll I ran through it.
