The '''Voigtländer Ultramatic CS''' was the first 35mm leaf shutter [[SLR]] camera with TTL metering. The design of the not too heavy camera was derived from the Voigtländer viewfinder cameras, with rounded sides and a shifter on the front side as shutter release. Its designer was Walter Swarofsky. A specialty of the camera was that shutter speed and aperture were controlled by rings around bayonet. The lenses had only a distance control ring. The 37mm bayonet offered mechanical control of both, aperture release and automatic aperture setting. The Septon 1:2/50mm was a superb lens, and like the Skopagon 2.0/40mm it was a quite fast lens for that type of SLR. The exposure delay of the complex mechanical masterpiece was only 1/50 sec.

The Ultramatic CS is a 35mm leaf shutter SLR made by Voigtländer in 1965. It was not the first (that was the Topcon Uni), but one of the earliest leaf shutter SLR cameras with TTL metering. The design of the camera was derived from the Voigtländer viewfinder cameras, with rounded sides and a sliding shutter release on the front of the body. Its designer was Walter Swarofsky. The shutter speed and aperture are controlled by rings around the lens mount. The shutter is a Synchro-Compur-V. The lenses themselves have only one ring, for focusing. The 37mm bayonet offers mechanical control of both aperture release and automatic aperture setting. The Septon 1:2/50mm is a superb lens, and like the Skopagon 2.0/40mm it is a fast lens for that type of SLR. The exposure delay of the camera is only 1/50 second. The accessory shoe (pictured) is detachable.
