    Voigtländer Brillant is a series of pseudo TLR and true TLR cameras taking 6x6cm exposures on roll 120 roll film, made by Voightländer & Sohn AG, Braunschweig, Germany and produced between 1932-1951.

    The first Voightländer Brillant was released in 1932. This early model resembles a TLR but it is functionally closer to a box camera, since it cannot be focused in the viewfinder. It uses 'zone-focusing' for which one has to estimate the distance to the subject. To assist this estimate, three situations are marked around the taking lens: Porträt, Gruppe and Landschaft (i. e. Portrait, Group and Landscape). While TLRs of the same period have a rather dim ground-glass viewfinder, the Brillant has a so-called "brilliant finder" made of plain glass.

    The 1932 version has a metal body. From 1937 onwards, the Brillant was made of Bakelite. The serial number, H 499173 (stamped on the inside of the hood, on the front face) dates this model to 1936. It's a second metal model; a classic front focusing ring with distance scale. Anastigmat Skopar 75mm f/4.5; diaphragm f/4.5-f/22; and Compur central leaf shutter, speeds of 1-1/300 +B & T.

    Asking $100 + $20 for USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Box. Payment by Paypal. Please include 3% for Paypal fees.
