by Stephanie Marriott
Voigtlander introduced the first Vito camera in 1940. It was their first 35 mm. camera and one aspect of the design raises an interesting question. The film transport uses a serrated feeler spindle instead of the more familiar sprocket, suggesting that perhaps the original intention had been to make a camera to use unperforated film. Voigtlander had interests in film manufacturing so the supply of a special film would have presented them with no problems and might even have been seen as good for business.
