A wonderful small camera, the Vito B is of a classic camera design of metal and leather with meticulous attention to details. Its design speaks of the decade it was manufactured (1954-57).
This one's been in use on and off for sixty odd years, still works like clockwork and has great surface finish. The ASA/DIN dial has been a bit worn though (pictured). The lens ring has a dent, therefore preventing the fit of screw-on filters.
This model has no light meter, so you have to get the app or use your experienced eyes.
The camera does not work until loaded with a film which makes people assume it is broken when testing it.
It has been successfully film tested. The camera works entirely as intended. Lens and rangefinder are dust and scratch free.
You get: A clean camera (this model has no light seals); original leather case; a 100 ASA b&w Fomapan film.
The light seals of cameras are meticulously replaced and new batteries are added for instant usage.
A note on the condition of the product: I clean lenses and viewfinders as much as possible, but they are not disassembled to be cleaned. There is almost always dust inside viewfinders, but it is very rarely a problem. Light meters are always tested, but not for perfect accuracy. There is always a comment on the condition of the light meter if there is a problem. If you use a battery of a higher voltage than intended light meters will show different results. I replace all light seals on the cameras I sell. ALL old light seals are a potential source of dust and smear inside the camera when older than 30 years. On some models light might seep onto the film if the seals are old and shrunken. The camera you buy is ready to use the instant you load it with a roll of film.
The product you buy is vintage, which means it may have been used and also the materials have aged consequently. Consider these facts when ordering a vintage product.
Shipping cost is often miscalculated by Etsy when orders of two or more products are placed. Contact me for proper shipping cost estimates. Shipping time overseas from Europe is in most cases 10-15 work days.
A note on batteries: Most vintage cameras are sold without batteries. Often batteries are a hassle to get hold of. getOurBooks supplies you purchase with the correct battery.
