The Prominent 6x9cm folder was launched in 1932 as the first Range Finder Camera of Voigtlander. It was a year before Zeiss Ikon "Super Ikonta" came the market out. It looks really unique camera though, all finishing are very good works well now. As the required film is 120 type which is currency supplying, it is possible to take color or B&W pictures.
The lens attached is famous Helier that gives us clear pictures even now. The Range Finder is so precise and it's sight of view looks like telescope. It is no problem with full open aperture.
It is rare for the camera of that age 1932, which an exposure meteter was built in the body.
