Es pequeña pero con una construcción maravillosa. Gran tacto con forro de imitación de piel incluso en la base. Bueno objetivo con enfoque fino. El único inconveniente es su enfoque por cálculo de distancia.
Una cámara bonita y generalmente barata.

The Vito B is an attractive and compact 35mm viewfinder made by Voigtländer and produced from 1954 to 1960. It has the fine Color-Skopar 50mm f/3.5 or f/2.8 lens (a four element Tessar-type). The Vito B was equipped with either a 4-speed Pronto shutter (B, 1/25th, 1/50th, 1/100th, and 1/200th sec) or 8-speed (B, 1, 1/2, 1/5th, 1/10th, 1/25th, 1/50th, 1/100th, and 1/300th sec) Prontor SVS shutter, the 4-speed shutter being discontinued in 1957. The shutter is cocked by the film engaging a sprocket wheel, preventing double exposure, and so will not cock if there is not a film present; this has led some to mistakenly diagnose the shutter of a working Vito B as broken. The self-timer mechanism can be engaged by moving the synchronizing lever to the V (green) position; however, given the age of the camera and the weak governing spring, using this feature is discouraged, as it can cause the camera to stop working. The Vito B's body is compact and rounded, a look characterized as "cute". It has some nice features including a hinged baseplate for easy loading (which also releases the back) and a milled film counter that counts down rather than up. The Vito B body existed in two versions, the first one (1954-57) had a small viewfinder and low profile top plate. The later version (1957-60) had a larger bright-frame viewfinder; while brighter and more useful than the original Vito B's viewfinder, some enthusiasts feel that this spoiled the appearance of the camera.
