The Taron Vic from c.1962 is a beginner-oriented camera from Taron, much like the JL, but adding rangefinder focusing. A selenium meter drives red or yellow indicator spots atop the viewfinder image, indicating under- or over-exposure at the current settings. Twisting the large ribbed central ring until neither dot appears selects pairs of aperture/shutter speed combinations (from 1/30 sec. at f/2.8 to 1/250 at f/22)—in other words, manual "programmed" exposure. Alternately pressing a tab can decouple the shutter and aperture to be read off scales tucked out of view on the underside of the lens barrel (e.g. for for "bulb" or flash exposures).
