About the Voigtlander Bessa R4M

The Voigtlander R4M and R4A are production 35mm rangefinder cameras that are made with built in parallax projected framelines for 21, 25, 28, 35, and 50mm lenses. A tremendous feature for rangefinder lovers who have been longing for a Rangefinder with built in 21 and 25 framelines. This opens up a new world of convenient possibilities for the RF user, just frame and focus directly from the built-in viewfinder and you wont have to carry and keep track of 21 and 25 accessory viewfinders.

The R4M is above all else small, and light, really an unobtrusive cameras that is ideal for handheld lowlight conditions, and was designed specifically for the wide-angle shooter. It features a mechanical shutter that works without batteries (without metering, when used without batteries).

It has a simple LED metering display along the bottom of the viewfinder, that displayes exposure information in .5 EV values. The metering display is the same as the R3M. It has an exceptionally bright viewfinder, as well as a quiet shutter. The R4M is offered only in classic black paint finish, like the R2M or R3M.

Voigtlander Bessa R4M Includes

  • Bessa R4M Wide Angle 35mm Rangefinder Black Camera Body
  • Two A76 (LR44) 1.5v Alkaline Batteries
