Voigtlander Bessa R3A 35mm Film Camera

hadzinikitas, Ebay
5 March 2011
  • Summary: Would prefer the mechanical one, In cold weather long time out of the bag has a problem with battery, for people with glass the 40mm frame is just, we don't see it all. 50mm frame perfect. Like also the viewfinder 1/1. A little noisy.

A great alternative to the Leica M7. Only 1:1 finder !!

  • Summary: This is a great and cheap alternative for Leica M shooters who use a 40mm or longer lens and wish they could have Aperture priority shooting with paying $2000 or more. It works really well. It will not be a durable as a Leica M7 but at 1/4 the price you can buy 3 and still be ahead 400-600 USD! The 1:1 magnification finder is very bright and enables shooting with both eyes open. It is a modern M3 without the longevity of a mechanical marvel.

excellent camera for the price

  • Summary: I have owned several Bessas- the Bessa L, the Bessa R, the B3a. These are all excellent cameras with the Leica lens mount. They have accurate metering, accurate focusing, and with the R3a, aperture-preferred automation with exposure compensation. They flash sync at 1/125th unlike the Leicas at 1/50th. Any Leicanut will tell you this camera is not as heavy/substantial as an M7/M6/M3 or that the rangefinder base length is shorter than the M6/M7.
