Voigtlander Bessa RF Bellows Camera with Case, filter and book has a Heliar F3.5/10.5cm Lens. Cosmetics and optics in EXCELLENT condition. It really does look excellent, almost pristine for its age & includes the Filter , case and owner's manual.
Compur Rapid shutter works from all speeds but we cannot guaranty the accuracy due to the age. This shutter could use a clean and service.
But for this detail I would say this example is as good as you will ever likely find. Optics: The top of the range five element Heliar lens retains the original yellow filter and is spotlessly clean, no scratches, haze or fungus. Bellows are good and the camera opens and closes nicely, both struts in perfect straight condition and the RF focus is smooth. Condition Note: shutter needs CLA.
Original leather case, needs stitching, filter and book. The original owners manual is in French and the cover is loose.
