Friday, October 4, 2013

The Leitz Visoflex II was a reflex housing accesory for Leica camera bodies introduced by Leitz Wetzlar in the 1960s. The Visoflex II fitted on Leica cameras like an interchangeable lens and was available with either a bayonet or screw climb on. This accesory could alter a rangefinder camera into a SLR camera. It comprised of the Visoflex body encompassing a reflex reflector, an eye-level pentaprism magnifier (viewfinder), and a easy magnifier. The person taking photos first had to screw the reflex lodgings onto the camera body and then skid either of the examining magnifier up on the housing.
