Chronology of cameras Zeiss Ikon - Voigtlander 

A very good rangefinder, that does not please the eye!

1965: Zeiss Ikon buys back Voigtländer. Several cameras are born from this joint venture, the most famous being the Icarex.

This Vitessa 1000 SR, introduced in 1968, is a particularly well constructed and attractive model: equipped with an accurate CDS-cell, the very good perspective of a Tessar 2,8/42 mm (mysteriously ressembling the Color Lanthar of the Voigtländer Vitessa 500 S), and above all a Prontor shutter with 1/1000th sec, a leaf shutter record!

Main characterisic: the advance lever is located om the bottom plate of the camera, which calls for the use of the original camera case.

The aesthetics on the contrary receive less applause: an almost exact rectangular box, from which the circular lens protrudes: obviously the technicians were more inspired than the designers!

The 1000 SR turns out to be pleasant and efficient in use: with its clear and precise viewfinder/rangefinder it delivers excellent results on the emulsion. 

The PX675 battery can best be replaced by a SR44 or a ZA675 cell:
