Voigtländer of Germany to Release Bessa III 667 Classic Camera

Voigtländer Bessa III 667 Classic Camera

Think film is dead? Not in your lifetime! Germany’s Voigtländer is introducing the Bessa III 667, a classic design camera that uses 120 and 220 roll films. The Bessa III is a folding bellows camera that allows high-quality images to be taken using a high-performance Heliar 80mm f/3.5-4 lens unit.

For the nostalgia buff, the Bessa III allows you to do manual film wind using a winding knob. The exposure counter is a mechanical type, 120/220 with changeable 6×7 or 6×6 formats and film speed allows manual settings of ISO 25 to ISO 3200 with EV 1/3 step accuracy.

The camera is marked in Japan as the Fujifilm GF670, and is developed there by Fujifilm and Cosina. The Bessa III will be available in Europe in the spring of 2009, according to Voigtländer.

One thought on “Voigtländer of Germany to Release Bessa III 667 Classic Camera

    Just a head’s up: It’s Japan’s Voigtländer, not Germany’s. Cosina, Japan has had the rights to the venerable German name for a long time. So far as I know, there are no design or manufacturing links to Germany whatsoever. But Cosina is happy to not disturb the perception of a German connection, which elicits associations with the likes of Zeiss and Leitz, etc. They usually manage to stamp both “Germany” and “Made in Japan” somewhere on their products.

    No disrespect to Cosina; their Voigtländer division makes extremely interesting products of very respectable physical and design quality.
