by Stephanie Marriott
This model was introduced in 1954 and it was the first of the rigid fronted models. It has a die-cast body covered in leather with a hinged back and hinged section of the baseplate for easy film loading. The exposed metal parts are satin chrome, except the lens mountings, which are bright. The top plate incorporates a lever wind and pop-up rewind knob which carries a film-speed reminder. A partly exposed film can be reloaded by lifting the rewind knob, which disengages the double-exposure interlock. There is a milled wheel near the base-plate which permits the frame counter to be set. Note that the frame counter shows the number of unexposed frames. The film track was redesigned for the Vito B to ensure flatness and scratch-free transport. The hinged baseplate was designed for easy loading. The camera is also fitted with an accessory shoe, a cable release socket (in the centre of the shutter release) and delayed action release.
