Oh, Jan! that Vitessa is beautiful! I had one so long ago ('67?) that I don't remember what happened to it. When I think of all the cameras I got rid of because of double exposures (that's french for I didn't know how to load them properly) I'm just sick. Not just the Vitessa, but also a perfectly good Canon VT.

Fellow RFF member: I respect your bandwidth by not posting images larger than 800px on the longest side, and by removing image in a quote.
Together we can combat bandwidth waste (and image scrolling).

Vitomatic IIa with a most wonderful viewfinder and unfortunately a wisp of fungus in the lens.
Anyone know how to remove the front glass on these
without screwing up the rf focus?
