German film SLR from 1960 – Voigtlander Bessamatic with f4 135mm lens


I head to Toronto tomorrow for some medical appointments. I plan to load this baby tonight and will probably take off the 135mm lens and put on either the 35mm or 50mm lens. HP5 400 ISO from ILFORD is the film of choice.

When I get the film processed and scan the negatives of downtown Toronto, I will add some shots with the camera with the three different lenses mounted and some closeups of the controls.
Keep an eye out for that post in about two weeks time.

  1. it was so sunny in Toronto today, I had 400 iso film in it and the relatively slow maximum shutter speed even with f22 was too much light for the fast film, however, i shot 12 frames. This weekend is the Coldwater Ontario Fall Fair, I will take this camera. I bought some Delta 100 rolls of film to shoot in it this afternoon in Toronto. It is fun to shoot.
