Film Trekking with the Voigtlander Vitomatic I

September 12, 2014

Ah yis, a new film camera start shooting with. Well, actually, not really that new. I’ve had the Voigtlander Vitomatic I rangefinder for almost a decade but for some reason haven’t started shooting with it until now. The Vitomatic I is a 35mm rangefinder introduced in 1958, and I have to say it is a solid camera. I feel that it’s sustainable to say that if I dropped it on my foot, my foot would receive more damage than the camera. I’m debating whether or not to start shooting portraits with it, as there are some quirks I need to get used to. The focus is a little difficult and the metering takes a bit to get used to. Take a look at some experimental shots with this brick of a camera below.

These mugshots of female Australian criminals during the 1920s are fashionably fabulous and have kind of an artistic quality to them.
