Voigtländer Bessa 6×9

Released 1929

I’ve wanted a bellows camera of some sort for ages, mainly for their antique looks. Trouble is, it’s hard to find specimens with the leather intact and still light-tight. This one is in poor cosmetic condition, but still mostly works.

The shutter is a bit sticky at slow speeds and when I first got it the winding mechanism was rusted and even the film had rusted onto the frame. There was a film in the camera with some photos of a previous owner, which I developed.

See all photos taken with the Bessa.
