A system which presented the solution to optical problems that had appeared insurmountable at the time. And it amazed everybody with its results - more brilliant, sharper, and more life-like pictures than ever. Two decisive features are behind this obvious advance. They are the precise optical correction of the Voigtlander high-class anastigmat lenses, and the ultimate perfection of the camera design.
PROMINENT points of progress:
An entirely new camera design, incorporating a diaphragm shutter, coupled range~ and viewfinder, and interchangeable lenses.
Voigtlander high-class lenses in quick-change mounts, giving outstanding marginal definition, brilliance, and colour correction.
The SYNCHRO-COMPUR shutter with speeds from 1 to 1/500 second, and delayed action release. The shutter is speed-synchronized for all types of flash bulbs and electronic flash up to the fastest shutter speed.
A highly accurate view- and rangefinder combined in one eyepiece, with automatic compensation for errors in magnification.
Two-finger operation with control from above; you shoot continuously without taking the camera from the eye.
Automatically coupled shutter tensioning, film wind, and film counter.
