If you never shot a frame with this Voigtlander (Perkeo = pigmy)  it wouldn't matter a bit. It is just beautiful to look at. A return to the days (1953) when precision engineering was precise. 65 years old yet this camera is fully operational, cosmetically close to 100% and delightfully simple to use. Color Skopar 80mm f3.5 lens in a Synchro-Compur shutter giving bulb to 1/500 speeds. There is no rangefinder or light metering, but there is zone focusing, or measure the distance with an external rangefinder and use a handheld light meter. 'Sunny 16' works well too. 125mmx85mmx50mm. Shoots a 6x6 transparency giving 12 images on a 120 roll. The original brown leather hide case in good vintage condition complements the Perkeo. This example comes with the very rare, original aluminium lens hood and a set of original Voigtlander filters. In all an extremely collectible and usable vintage camera. Made even more usable with the addition of a genuine Voigtlander Rangefinder. Accurately measure your focus distance, adjust the lens focus accordingly ensuring a sharp image every frame.  Ask any questions about the Perkeo II:   Alex Donald
