VOIGHTLANDER BESSA FOLDER CAMERA with Braunschweig 10.5cm f3.5 Lens. SHUTTER FIRES AT ALL SPEEDS.
I CAN PROVIDE MORE PICTURES IF NEEDED. The Voigtlander Bessa I is a 6×9 folding viewfinder camera made from 1949 until about 1957. At 6x9cm, the negatives are the same aspect ratio as 35mm frames 1:1.5. But at 36x24mm, a 135 frame covers 864mm², or 8.64cm². The frames the Voigtlander (or any 6×9 camera, really) makes cover 54cm².
Thats more than six times as much area, and six times as many molecules of silver halide available to make big, beautiful negatives. Set for 6x4cm, youre still getting nearly three times the image area as a 35mm frame. Youre also getting 16 frames on a roll of 120 film instead of just eight. There is a switch near the viewfinder that engages a mask you can use to compose your half frames more accurately, and a dial above the viewfinder which mode the viewfinder mask is in.
