Voiglander Perkeo 1

Hong Kong

A friend of mine gave me this vintage German made camera "Voiglander Perkeo 1". It was one of the cameras owned by her late father.

The camera was made in 1950. It has a Vaskar 80mm f/4.5 lens and takes 6x6cm pictures on 120 format films.

Voiglander is an optical company founded in 1756 by Johann Christoph Voiglander in Vienna and thus the oldest name in cameras.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S DX
1/60s f/16.0 at 48.0mm iso100 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto
