Voigtlander Perkeo II with Rowi rangefinder

Postby PFMcFarland » Wed Jun 08, 2016 10:09 pm

With a Color-Skopar 3.5/80, double exposure prevention, and auto frame stop on winding, this is a very nice camera to slip into ones pocket for a day. The auto stop does skip every once in a while, there is some fungus in the lens which didn’t affect the photos any, and it has a slight bellows leak in one corner. I used the hood (first four photos) and yellow filter (last six photos) from my Vito B outfit, and attached a Rowi rangefinder for critical focus situations. Exposures were good, and where there were corrections needed, it was due to my exposing for the sky so I could brighten up the shadows in post. Also some cropping to compensate for the parallax I forgot to factor in.

That is a very fine looking camera you have there. I always fancied a Perkeo myself but never got to it. I bought an Agfa Isolette instead. I like the Isolette, but the Perkeo is more of a camera than an Isolette is. Although they both fit in a pocket, the Perkeo build quality is higher, while an Isolette feels more like a lightweight tin box. You made a nice series of pictures with that Perkeo, and that lens seems to be very sharp and contrasty. Good work!

Very fine, and nice sharp pictures. I had not realized that the filter size is the same as for the Vito. I have a Perkeo somewhere that I must exercise soon.
