Very simple but good size and bright.

Image quality
First shots are a bit overexposed and have more grain.

Analogue B&W film
Not extremely sharp wide open but i would say good enough.

Not that serve corner softness which is mostly gone by f/5.6 and the lens is great from here on.

Build quality

Very good and have a very solid feel.


This is the simplest version of the Vitoret cameras and that really shows in the specs.
A shutter with time from 1/125s to 1/30s is not very impressive.
Two aperture blade which makes a square which can make some odd looking bokeh and flare.
The view finder is very simple but good size and brigt, also in scale 1:1 which is nice.

Okey image quality wide open and is good from f/5.6.

Thumbs up:
Build quality

Thumbs down:
Few shutter speeds
Two bladed aperture
