Voigtlander Vito Cameras - Vito CD

by Stephanie Marriott

This camera is based on the Vito C, with the addition of a built-in Bewi uncoupled meter. It was introduced in 1960 when, with 50 mm. f/2.8 Lanthar in Pronto four-speed shutter, it cost about £29.

The match-needle meter display is on the top plate. The meter reading is an exposure value which is transferred to the shutter by releasing the EV scale interlock and setting the desired value against a red mark. Focusing is simplified by the use of zone focus marks, and a depth of field scale is engraved on the shutter cover plate. As with the Vito C, different finish options were available for a while and the camera appears to have been discontinued at about the same time as the Vito C.
