Voigtlander Bessa L with a Super Wide-Heliar 15mm f/4.5 Aspherical Lens. The camera and lens are an interchangeable L39 screw mount. There is no built in viewfinder so shooting with the system relies on having an eyepiece that matches the focal length. A 15mm eyepiece attachment is included.
Product has been fully tested as working. Comes with 90 day warranty. See below for technician evaluation:
Cosmetic condition: Excellent Plus - In above average condition for vintage item of this age. There are quite a few marks on the rubber parts of the body, with more heavy wear on the back side of the camera. The rest of the black finish on the metal exterior has very little wear.
Film transport gears: Excellent - Advance lever moves forward precisely and advances film smoothly.
Shutter speeds: Excellent - Tested as accurate at all speeds.
Light Meter: Excellent - This camera uses a very basic meter with two red arrow lights for over and under exposure and a green dot for normal exposure. We've tested it and found it accurate against a professional meter.
Hotshoe: Cold shoe only. Mostly used for attaching eyepiece for composition - 15mm eyepiece is included and in near perfect optical condition.
Triotar 40mm f/3.5 Built in Lens: Very Good - Clean glass, a small amount of internal dust consistent with optics from this era.
Includes original Voigtlander branded slip on front lens cap.
Our goal is to provide an accurate, detailed description for each used item that we sell. We focus on testing the most important aspects related to the functionality. Please note that with older vintage items, a slight degree of imperfection is to be expected.
