Fantastic Plastic, Voigtlaender Vitoret (1962) For the second gallery of Fantastic Plastic series, I have opted for the very basic model from a range of successful German viewfinders from the 1960s. Probably not so much a toy camera, the Vitoret is not entirely plastic and does feature useful features such as the ability to set the aperture and shutter speed (only four though topping out at 1/125th), as well as a manual focus ring (guess the distance). The distance scale includes useful markings for rapid zone focusing i.e portraits (spot), groups (triangle) and landscapes (circle). Big, clear viewfinder for framing the shot.
