Voigtlander Bessa R4M

Voigtlander Bessa R4M The Voigtlander Bessa R4M is a 35mm rangefinder camera was designed with the wide-angle shooter specifically in mind. It has built-in parallax projected frame lines for 21, 25, 28, 35, and 50mm lenses. As a result, you no longer need to use an external viewfinder mounted on top of the camera. This means that you can now both frame and focus directly from the built-in viewfinder, eliminating the need to having to move your eye to a separate viewfinder.

Besides for the wide-angle viewfinder of the R4A camera, all other features are identical to the Bessa R3A. Of course, all of the original Bessa R's outstanding features are retained; an exceptionally bright viewfinder, quiet shutter & simple LED metering system. Many internal parts of the R4 are made of metal instead of plastic (as on the Bessa R), resulting in a camera which feels more solid and durable in one's hands.

This camera features a mechanical shutter release. This makes it possible to use the camera even without batteries, albeit without metering.

Note! As a result of the wide-angle design of the viewfinder, this camera is not recommended for use with lenses longer than 50mm, used wide-open, at short distances. ✓
