|This is the discussion page for Ultramatic CS.
"The Ultramatic CS is a 35mm leaf shutter SLR made by Voigtländer in 1965. It was the first such camera with TTL metering."
Hang on a moment. Wasn't the Topcon Uni - a leaf shutter SLR made in 1964 the first with TTL metering?
When you read this article : http://www.camera.portraits.srv2.com/uni.htm then the Topcon RE Super was even a year earlier (1963).
Well, maybe the Ultramatic CS was the first such German made camera ?
Ah ... but the RE Super had a focal plane shutter. I wasn't sure if I was missing something, because the Camera-Wiki Ultramatic text doesn't say it was the first but "first such camera". Maybe it's just a case of clumsy wording? Definitely wasn't the first. I'll correct the text if no one comes up with an explanation. PS: that article you refer to ... I wrote it!
I'll get on to it later, and do a bit of checking first. Anyway, you made me grin. The world is such a vast place, and then suddenly, for a moment, it becomes tiny.
