Voigtlander Bessa III

USED MINT- USA Voigtlander Bessa III 667
BOXED with Leather Case and Lens Hood
discontinued and out of stock at the factory, we occasionally have 667s used

Folding 120/220 Multi Format 6x6 /  6x7 Rangefinder Film Camera -

The Voigtlander Bessa III / III Wide are arguably have a more advanced rangefinder/viewfinder than any Leica ever made, as they not only correct for parallax, but ALSO corrects for FRAME SIZE as the focus distance changes (to give the most accurate framing) and is also adjustable for two different film formats!    Please Note: CQ will not provide repair services of any kind for grey market Bessa III cameras.

The electronic leaf shutter is incredibly quiet, quieter than the legendary Leica M shutter!
