The besa ii 6×9 format folding camera’s side handles are very beautiful. Buying a film camera today is, on the one hand, curious about old lenses, and on the other hand, moved by that industrial design, and I seem to prefer the latter. Today is Yesterday ’s pupil.
Volenda bessa ii belongs to the top leather cavity folding rangefinder camera, a camera that could perfectly combine leather and metal in that era. The leather feel is excellent. This is a 6 × 9 120 format camera that folds up like a Leica camera. Bessa II is lighter than Makina67 and Pentax 67.
Many portrait photographers like Volenda Bessa II. It is the dreamy-and-sharp all at the same time.
Holding besa ii street photography is really fun. You have n’t had time to shoot passersby, passers-by have taken out their phones and started to shoot you. Just standing on the street with an accordion-like camera, as if I was here to perform. An old man stopped to chat with me about his photography history when he was young.
There are three versions of the bessa ii, the main difference is the lens. Mine is the 105 3.5 Heliar lens version. The Skopar version is half cheaper than Heliar and can be a starting point. The Apo-Lanthar version is a radiation lens and is rare.
6✖️9 Camera can only take 8 photos. You must be an expert photographer to use such a camera. Otherwise it is a waste of time and money.
